I need HELP! I alarms and vibrations going off on my body 15 hours a day. I’m on the verge of a heart attack! All joking aside. … ( okay there goes another one). My sensor is telling me that I’m HIGH, Like over 350 most of the time. I will do the finger stick, see if it’s close enough to calibrate, and then bolus. I have had horrible HbA1c’s in the last 6-9 months- as high as 8.9. That is totally NOT the kind of patient that I want to be. I have other health issues as well that I do take medications for and that do take time and focus away from treating my Diabetes as well as I should.
My pump settings for my Bolus are just OUT OF WHACK! I have become so confused , after all of these years with my changing body, for how my Carb Units, Carb Ratios, and Sensitivity rates should be. I am really WANT to get that A1c back down to a healthy #. My last # was finally down to 7.9 ( which I think is about 200). I used to be such a “good patient”. Now I have so many medications to take. It’s just overwhelming. I must state that I was dxd with Diabetic neuropathy in my legs and feet plus Plantaar fascittis in 2012 (due to emergency tennis incident). This has never gone away. So now I take up to 1600 Mg. Gabapentin a day.
I’ve now moved half-way across the country to Louisiana and have just gotten in with a new Endo here. My blood work is showing “Fatty Liver” on my test results although I haven’t reviewed it with him yet. I’m also suffering severe migraines here with often limit my daily activity and make my fibromyalgia pain even more severe.
Enough of that. (That STUPID BEEPING IS GETTING LOUDER AS I TYPE- ARRGH!!)
My pump is telling me to check my BG, like every half hour OR LESS. I CANNOT BE CONTROLLED BY THIS CRAP. Do I Call Medtronic’s HELP LINE again???
Thanks for letting me VENT. I am out of time. Must handle reality now.
