I’m going to rant for a moment because what the ever loving heck is going on here?!?!? I went to bed at 11pm and gave correction for a 170bg. I got woken up at 3:30am by this lovely new share contraption to a 254 bg. Corrected, started a 150% temp basal (that’s +50% for you non-medtronic people) and figured she’d be good by morning.
Apparently during this middle of the night shuffle I managed to flip the switch in my phone to vibrate. Share does NOT give audible alerts when the phone is on vibrate, just FYI. So imagine my surprise when my alarm went off at 7:15am and Dexcom says she’s 297. Fingerstick says she’s actually 321. Correct. Extra correct. Check ketones- negative. 200% temp basal for the morning. Go back to bed.
Wake up at 10:30am bg is 135. Hooray!
Did I mention we did something not dissimilar the night/day before? I want to blame the time change, but I’m pretty sure time change doesn’t make a person’s body totally laugh at two different correction doses, double their basal insulin dose and keep on rising. Oh yeah, and it’s a sure-t set that was new on Sunday afternoon so not a cannula issue.
