I’m going to vent here, so please feel free to move on if you don’t want to read it.
Okay, so, I don’t typically talk about it when I have diabetic issues. But today, I have been in the high three hundreds all day. This is really Atypical for me. I used the bolus feature on my PDM (I use the Omnipod system, but not Dash since my pharmacy benefit doesn’t cover it). And, after my BG didn’t come down, had to gradually increase my dose, finally culminating in 10 units of Novalog. I hate to disconnect a pod, because they’re so expensive, but I’d have to change it tomorrow anyway first thing, so, since I have now taken a whole 8 units to try to get it down (I’ve been watching my Dexcom and verifying with my glucometer almost every half hour), I’m changing my pod and trying a new vial of insulin.
Does anyone else have days like this?
I’m not really looking for solutions. I kind of just wanted to vent.
Thank you for your time.
