  • unaware hypoglycemia
    an expectation of insulin independence I cannot find a uniform definition or quantitation of this complication of insulin treatment I am aware that the definition may not be as easy as first thought I have seen a diabetic person trying to chop up vegetables with her hand a blood glucose of 53mg apparently conscious and quite responsive to questions Was this unaware hypoglycemia etc Follow Ups Re unaware hypoglycemia Al

  • Re: unaware hypoglycemia
    even within one person with other factors such as activity need for concentration etc Is a measurable lack of a counter regulatory response when blood glucose is deliberately driven low under medical observation a more objective measure of hypoglycemic unawareness Or possibly the BG level at which a counter regulatory response is observed if any might be a useful metric But I am just guessing here Al Follow Ups Re

    check gotta credit parental caring He actually thanked me later and acknowledged he was in the 50 s The pump s slow drip seemed to me at least to cause less responsiveness to the low as unlike an overzealous bolus the slow basal drip can be extremely gradual The only knowledge of the low coming from the adrenaline response intended to kick the liver to dump it s stored sugar

  • High blood glucose after pod change
    the pod is put on so I shouldn t be warned about occlusion technique or a defective pod It s probably that the basal won t kick in right away which means you start producing glucose with the absence of insulin Second thought is that air gets into the reservoir I am in good control 2 out of 3 days with a pod Other people say on web sites that

  • Re: High blood glucose after pod change
    see Likely what you are experiencing may be a combination of an interruption in the drip a small bubble of air in the infusion tube and an adjustment delay to the new site Two of these are somewhat easy to predict the adjustment delay and the interruption in the drip For me a drip interruption and a adjustment delay to the new site was barely noticeable because I have a fairly large dose when compared to the drip rate of the pods I think the pods drip 0 05 units with each click and I was taking around a 0 8u hr basal with 2 bolus 15g carb So I would not barely notice a missing 0 05u If you are more sensitive or have more latent insulin production then the 0 1 0 2u that a site swap could miss could be several hours worth of insulin For me a small bubble would clear quite quickly so I would likely not notice that either Deciding on how much to bolus would depend on what very high means To me high is between 2 and 300 very high is 3 400 and uh oh is anything over 400 Everyone is different so I can t say how much to bolus but you should have some idea on what your correction should be from your endo doctor But the air bubble or lack of air bubble in each individual insertion of each individual pod can be difficult to predict and even more difficult to observe as it would likely be under the skin If you are confident that there is a small air bubble contact Omni Pod at the help line to see if they have a recommendation If there is an air bubble then bolusing after insertion will help to

  • Re: High blood glucose after pod change
    have returned to daily multiple injections Although I never tried a pump I have found that an injection of Novolog fast acting before each meal and a bedtime injection of Levemir long acting is convenient and reliable Like you I do not worry about maintaining normal blood glucose levels as the risk of nighttime lows is just too great After decades I don t seem to have sustained any damage
