I have never in 20 years of being Diabetic had problems with a spike in sugars. Yesterday I shot up to 22.6 but figured it was the site so changed my site and set and tested in an hour. Again 22.6 so changed the site but not the reservoir. Tested in an hour and got a “HI” reading meaning I was over 35. I was very freaked out at that point and took a bolus with a needle, disconnected and checked the reservoir. It had a leak, the seal was not tight. So at this point I am not sure how much insulin has made it in. I changed everything and called my sister to come over so I wouldn`t be home alone with my two small children.
Everything was fine in the end but as I began to drop I was very jittery, cold and had a hard time putting sentences and thoughts together. I was terrified having never ever experienced this. So ended up going to emergency as I was afraid that I was dropping too fast or that something else was happening. Turns out all is well. Having never experienced that kind of high or drop to normal I didn’t know how it should feel – plus add in problems with anxiety and panic and well……. So I had quite the learning experience yesterday and my first ever visit to Emergency due to my Diabetes.
Anyone else ever experience thisÉ
