I would like to start a discussion as to where to go after pump therapy?
As a type one diabetic for over 25 years, I have seen the ups and downs.
I'm manically focused on trying to eat properly and exercise. Over the last few years my perception is that when I pump insulin, I do not see noticeable changes in my bg levels often. I have changed basal settings and increased bolus patterns. I do not know if I have scare tissue as I don't see it or feel it. It seems that sometime when I insert a new infusion set I get mixed results. A few days of the week I get good results and the others poor, It is almost like a unit of insulin will decrease my bg by 100 points. Other days it will only move 25 points at best. Because of this inconsistency, I can't develop a pattern of treatment. My eating habits are the same time(s) a day with mostly good food (low carb) at that. I use the MIO set and have tried sure T with the same results.
My endo are just keep testing and make the necessary corrections.
I'm toying with the idea of starting to use a Humalog pen to bring down highs fathers than my pump. This seems counter intuitive or is it not?
I have been described as of muscular build. Possibly using my arms could help?
I also have a CGM. It works well but I still have the same problem.
