Ok this is what leads to rage bolusing. My previous infusion set started out fine, but on the second day my BG just kept edging up all day despite correction boluses that were if anything over-generous, until by evening I’m up over 200 where I’d normally be going a bit low (I seem to have some endogenous insulin left and that’s when it chooses to come on). Seeing some effect, but just really weak. No occlusions, no wetness around the infusion spot, or any other sign of a problem. Finally decided “gotta just swap this thing out” even though I’d normally be getting another day out of it. And when I yanked it, it looked fine. Ok, so I move on to the next spot in the rotation, a couple inches over (I’m currently on my abdomen). Yesterday everything was fine, but here it is day two and it’s doing the same damn thing. Creeping up and up. At 11:20 I was at 179 where I’m usually down in the 120 neighborhood. So I did a correction, and given the time I figured I might as well make it a pre-lunch bolus as well, so I did ten units. A solid hour and 20 minutes later I still haven’t eaten (I’ve had nothing but a.m. coffee so far), I should be in a pretty decently severe HYPO by now, but it’s only come down to 150. No leakage, no occlusion alarms, everything looks good.
Thoughts? Am I just hitting bad sites now all over the place? I’ve been pumping for only 5 years–am I already running out of real estate? I’m going to be seriously depressed if that’s the case. Have I mentioned T1 sucks?
