hey y’all. so i have a question about this sufficient active insulin feature on my pump. i wear a minimed paradigm 712 and when i use the bolus wizard feature it tells me how much active insulin i have and subtracts that from the bolus. the only problem is that i think it isnt accurate. is there a way to change the settings on my pump for how long insulin is considered active in my body? (i feel like my old diabetes educator did that once, but i cant figure out how she did it!)
has anyone else encountered this?
it was really bothering so i finally decided that if i tested at two hours after eating and was high but had “sufficient insulin” and technically didnt need to correct, i would correct anyway. so far its working, but it makes me irritated cuz i feel like its a big guessing game like: how long should i wait to correct? will this make me go low? etc.
thanks for your advice!
