So, precursor, I'm new to a pump (got it last month). My pump has had a basal rate of .732 for a while now and its been going fine.
On Monday, I got very ill with a stomach virus causing vomiting and nausea. I had to recover all day Tuesday. On Wednesday, I noticed my BG sitting around 140-160 most of the day. I had to take 1 unit boluses every few hours throughout the day to keep it at 140-160. Today, I set my pump to about .76 which has been keeping me within the range I previously had at .732.
My question, is this something that others have experienced after being sick? Having to up their basal? I'm just concerned that if I am just needing to recover more and I leave this .76 basal setting on that I might end up chasing lows all day sometime soon.....
Could use some thoughts. Thanks!
