I have a wonderful support system, a great diabetic nurse and have come a long way in 7 months. I am on the pump and highly sensitive to insulin changes as I don't require too much insulin -avrg 16 units a day. I was gaining good control, finally. Recent A1C 6.8 (in the hospital in Sept, when first diagnosed, I was 11.9!). In the last three days I have started running high consistently with no real pattern, See readings in the 200's about 2/3's of the time and bolusing to correct more than I ever have in the past. I don't think that I am getting ill but I am a lttle congested with spring allergies. Do any of you notice changes in BG levels when seasons change and will I likely return to my previous insulin requirements or is this a more permanent situation? I have changed my insulin, the resevoir and the infusion set three times and have troubleshot the pump with the pump company and all seems normal there.
Any help/comfort that you other type 1's can offer woujld be greatly appreciated. I feel so weird to be newly diagnosed at this age.
