This is a short blog - as I’m pretty well freaking out at what is happening. Again, have a feeling due to stress of work lately that this is one of the causes for what is happening.
I am presently disconnected from Salvador Dali (my Animas 2020
pump) - as I’ve been fighting BG’s in 8-10 mmol/l / 144-180 mg/dl range for the past week - can’t bring them down. Went to bed last night with 22 mmol/l / 400 mg/dl - haven’t had this since I ate 16 slices of chocolate cake (only kidding - only had 1 chocolate chip muffin the other day for a birthday treat). Darn, I never stop making fun of this diabetes we suffer from can I? My way of handling this disease I expect, but probably not alone in how we cope with crazy periods like this.
Anyway, I decided to pull the plug (pump) at this
point in time. No air bubbles in tubing, did a test to see if insulin coming through tubing, fine. I injected my basal insulin (Lantus) and correction insulin (NovoRapid). Had a glass of water (hello - blood sugars are high).
To read the rest of my blog - please go to this link if you have the time - either comment there or here - does not matter. I’m off to check BG’s again, drink … water (feel like a camel). I need some advise from my PWD’s otherwise I think I may go more loopy then I am feeling now.
