There's Pumping, MDI and THIS...

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sue59 Sep 28, 2011. 11 Replies

So I've changed schedules temporarily for a work assignment and it requires me to get up at 03:00. I am on MDI (never been on a pump either) and do my lantus around 20:00. For this week-long…Continue

"Yum, if smoked on a weber and smothered in SPICY not sweet BBQ sauce. How about Shirataki (tofu) Noodles (with marinara sauce and meatballs)?"

"I understand the dilema. Its a shame things came to that result. I find it difficult to believe that you can blow a 0.07 after 3 drinks. Diabetes has made me a measurement freak, so I even measure BAC on my infrequent benders (from Home) and I find…"

"... but if she's having lows dont you suspect she might just need to cut back on the insulin? Otherwise she is eating to the dose and that makes weight loss impossible."

"Kelly, I'd be curious to know exactly why. As Scott mentioned I know Lantus isn't a perfect 24-hour curve and I'll admit things are still a bit blah, but despite any start-up time for the insulin to start working I'd say it…"

"I have often heard that if you miss your basal one day, the day after is worse than the day you miss it. Not sure if it is karma,but it is a pain in the you know what!"

"Lantus isn't really a flat 24-hour curve that begins the instant you take it. I forget what the delay is before it starts, but that's likely what caused the spike...."

"In case anyone can use this information someday, let me just mention how things turned out. I went home tested at 17:30 with a BS of 85, new I was due for another bolus comp, took 5 units (based on how I react to workouts), jogged 2 miles, noted a…"

"You are doing it just like I would :-) If you are replacing basal, correcting, and giving for food what else is there? One difference- I will usually just give my basal "dose" every 4 hours so I do not have to do as many injections. The…"

"Yeah guys, definitely one of those things we deal with. I guess I'm odd for enjoying the challenge. Indeed the Dexcom should get most of the credit for any success here. Since 12:00 I ate lunch, spiked a little and oddly leveled out a bit... I…"

"I think you're doing great so far keeping up with it! The Dexcom must be invaluable to you today. I agree with Marty... "just one of those things we diabetics must live with". I had a few terrifying moments when I was on MDI trying…"

"Wow!! Good Luck! Just one of those things we diabetics must live with. I work rotating shifts and lots of 16 hour shifts with only an 8 hour break. Sometimes 2 and 3 16hr shifts in a row. And it is over 100 degrees outside here where I work. I did…"

There's Pumping, MDI and THIS...

So I've changed schedules temporarily for a work assignment and it requires me to get up at 03:00. I am on MDI (never been on a pump either) and do my lantus around 20:00. For this week-long assignment I've been doing a basal split that gets me doing 80% of my lantus @ 03:15.Today something happened. I plowed through a numb mind until about 2 hours from my house, when my Dex started yelling. I knew right away, I forgot to do my basal. I figured I'd start bolusing to simulate something normal.…See More
