I am always high after breakfast in the high 200's to 300's-grain cereals shoot me really high-any ideas on what to eat to change that-now I'm eating toast. I eat dinner really early and try not to eat at night.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:59am
Allen, I think it's common to be high in the evenings because that's when we take in the most carbs rather we want to or Just starving by dinner I think.
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 11:57am
Michelle I think that's when I need an increase. But I'm also going to ask about adjusting my I:C for dinner too. Maybe that will help. I am glad you've had no 300s that makes a world of difference in how you feel.
Myriah, when you get it Monday, get it out an play with it. Make time to go through the DVD with your pump and practice the menus. That helped me a great deal.
Comment by Allen on January 28, 2010 at 11:53am
Oddly my high time is in the evenings as well. When I used insulin by syringe my high time was always after lunch.
Comment by Michele on January 28, 2010 at 11:22am
Funny, FlyWilley, my really high time is after dinner too!!!! That's the time I am still working on by myself. Ranging from 160 - 230 2-3 hours after dinner. Haven't seen a 300 since December - yay! My highest basal rate is from 5 pm to midnight. Good luck, Myriah! It is so worth the work. I feel soooo much better than I did when my sugars were swinging wildly. Keep us posted :)
Comment by Myriah on January 28, 2010 at 10:07am
it's all working out so fast! insurance paperwork went thru yesterday....PINK PING arrives on monday....tuesday i have a dr's appt, CDE, and pump girl will be there,'s kind of overwhelming! but at least it's all working out for the better! and i don't have to look at my PINK PING in a box for days! lol....whew what a whirlwind!
it's crazy to think i will be hooked up in a few days! i didn't think it was gonna happen!
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 9:32am
Very good Michelle. I can't wait till I get all adjusted. I'm so high after dinner around 9-10pm 250-300. And I started dropping at work around 4-5pm 60-80. The rest seems to be in place. But hey for 3 weeks into it I think over all control is alot better, no 300+s.
Myriah welcome to the Pink Ping bandwagon :~D. Do u have to go through the training?
Comment by Myriah on January 28, 2010 at 8:35am
flywilley - this is my second pump, actually....had the pod for a year and a half and dind't have "good luck" with it....and i'm ready to feel good again and kick those high sugars to the curb! so i'm on the PINK PING bandwagon ;-)
my impression of minimed hasn't ever been positive, so i did more research and decided on the PING.....congrats, michelle!!
Comment by Michele on January 28, 2010 at 8:28am
I love, love, love my pink ping! I just got released yesterday from the faxing in of blood sugar results! I am flying solo until my next doctor's visit in March. All the settings are finally worked out. Hooray!
Comment by FlyWilley on January 28, 2010 at 8:22am
Congrats Myriah!!! Is this your 1st pump? It's mine but Tues I had the oppurtunity to sit in on a minimed paradigm training with a friend. After his training, I was really glad I chose the Ping.
