Mary's sugars were so good the other night, I thought, "great, tonight can finally get some sleep!"
All of a sudden @ 10:00 she felt low and it turned out to be 46 with over 1 unit on board. We gaver her full glass of OJ. We waited 15 min all the while she was complaining she did not fell well.
After we checked it again it still read 46. This time another glass of OJ, and a box of raisins, then a ring ding.
Finally it read 78. Then went up to 115 I suspended her pump for an hour.. I set my alarm for 12:00 am and it read 348. And the whole night since she kept going higher. Her highest reading was over 500.
I gave a correction dose before the 500 reading. Once I got to the 500 I have her 3 units via a needle.
This morning she is still reading 368.
NO keytones, though. I cant figure that out because she is complaining of stomach pains.
The only thing I can figure is the insulin went bad.
We changed her set yesterday morning and her sugars were just fine during the day.
Her bottle of insulin was down to the very last drop.
Anyway, I just changed her set again this morning with a fresh bottle of insulin. It is still a bit high but is reading @ 268.
I am so tired, I probably dont even make sense, but I am so weary, any advise would be appreciated.
We are still new to the medtronic.
