So far I am loving my switch from Tandem back to Medtronic 670G. Now that I am running in Automode, I noticed it never Suspends on Low, and I also know that this feature turns off when you switch to AutoMode. I don’t understand how Automode handles Lows. Yesterday, was my first day on Automode (and my overnight was awesome btw!) and during the day I went in the 40s but it appeared that the pump was still supplying basal. I was surprised it didn’t Suspend. When the White Shield Safe Mode appeared, is that an indication that the pump may have suspended behind the scenes? If so, it’s confusing because the White Shield has multiple meanings and without the pump stating it’s suspended, then I just don’t feel confident when I’m low. Maybe it does suspend and I just don’t know where to look to see that. Or do I manually suspend myself if I’m going low in automode? Keep in mind I am only on day 2 and still learning so please have patience.
The second question is that I have read and some places mention that if you Active Insulin Time was 4 hours, you may need to lower to 3.5 or 3 while on AutoMode. Does this sound accurate?
