I am new to the pump, and have only been on my Ping for about one week. Been type 1 for 12 years. So, my basal rates are pretty much the same 24 hrs a day, with the small exception of a .05 difference from 2am to 10am. I woke up at 7:30 am and my BS was 150. I check again when I get to work(9am), and its 215. I give a 2 unit correction. I did not eat anything at that point. I go to our cafeteria and get an english muffin (27g carbs) with an egg and a slice of cheese. I give 3 units for this, about 5 minutes prior to eating. This was at 9:30am. I check a few minutes ago and my BS is 243. I have 3.5 or so units on board, so I hesitate to give a correction. Given this info, what did I do wrong? What would you have done differently?
I think I might need to adjust my basal rates a bit, which is something I will discuss with my doc, but Im looking for insight. Things like this happen fairly regularly and its really frustrating..
