I have now 2 months ago switched over from an animas vibe insulin pump to the new fancy Tandem T-slim X2. Ever since I switched over my Blood glucose has gone severely downhill. Usually my glucose is easy to handle since I’m someone who exercises a lot and eats a healthy diet.
But ever since I’ve switched over I have increased my daily intake of insulin by some days 40-50%! It’s like the new pump is not giving me the right amounts of insulin, I am constantly annoyed by oclassion alarms, my blood sugar spikes all the time and when I take corrections, it’s like the blood sugar doesn’t even budge. So now I’m pretty pissed, some days (out of rage) I can even take the double amount of insulin and put my basal at 130-150%, and even then I might sometime be struggling. But what confuses me is that during nighttime, I’m always fine. My glucose is balanced all the way until waking up, until I eat breakfast and then he’ll breaks loose.
Has anyone else had issues with insulin and this pump? I am so over it and I can’t go on like this with these swings in the blood sugar.
Please help me out
