ughhh! i just had an apt. with my endo today, and my a1c went up from 6.8 to 7.6! This is what the summer months do to me.Luckily she changed a few of my basal rates etc.
ALSO, i didn't know that the insulin has to be replaced every 72 hours, i just usually use it till it gets over, which is a little bit over that, & thats why she saw the trend in my Bg's on like he third day before replacing.
ALSO. When do you guys change your site? i know changing at night is not okay, because you have to make sure it works, before you go to bed. but today my endo told me that you have to change before a meal, because the insulin from filling the cannula goes just to the top, but when you bolus its whill flus out any fat or anything that is around it, and lower you chances for it getting clogged.
LASTLY. i found out why the insulin has been stinging sometimes when i first change my pmp site, because the insulin is cold if it just comes out of the refrigerator, and that makes it sting.
hmm. i need to start working on my control more..thanks for listening to my vent! :)
