"Interesting data. You are hitting basil at 3:00am. Quite logical.
I run my metformin so it targets 12:30 amd to 5:30 am. That is up to strength in blood and for me due to bad liver signalling Metformin nails it back. To achieve that I take dose of…"
"With the pump and cgm... my endo and I have gotten to 5 changes 12:00am 1.7
This program seems to be working for me. But as you can see big difference during the day and night.
"I can definitely hear - and UNDERSTAND! your frustration. It does seem a big gap from .300 to 19 units. You do tend to have a reduction in total basal on the pump but not that much! But obviously something different is going on with you now. You…"
"No, Levemir won't make your blood glucose go up. Yes, you probably aren't getting enough and also might try splitting dose for better coverage. But bottom line is it's hard to regulate basal with MDI. Not sure what your last sentence…"
"Walsh says it starts between 1 and 3. I think a lot of people have the misconception it doesn't happen until right before you wake up. But it sounds like you are having highs at different times. Sounds like your basal might be too low, but…"
"Are you confident in your ISF, Sarah? Since you are doing this with shots so don't have mechanical issues and your corrections aren't bringing you down to goal, perhaps your ISF is off? Also, is there a chance you are incubating an…"
"OH, I'm SO GLAD for you. I know, right. We wake up to a good number (or at least better) and it's like winning the frickin lottery..ha! So, DP, per Walsh starts about 12am, is that correct? My endo discussed this with me too, cause…"
"It's finally beginning to budge, Sarah, yay! I was going to wait to comment until I was where I want to be, but this morning for the first time I was under 200 when I woke up! Never thought I'd be glad to say that! It took some convincing…"
How's it going? I too am having the same problem(s) have been for a while but mine is now lasting all day..ugh! But, that's another issue. It's hard to say because even if we have a slight drop in the middle of the night,…"
"I'm not a Muslim but I don't think it makes you "less of a Muslim" to take care of your health. And the quote you provide from the Qur'an makes it clear you are well within the bounds of what is prescribed. I'm glad you…"
"I absolutely agree. I don't know much at all about kids dosing, but the dose that keeps you in range most of the time is the right dose! Personally I think those formulas are nonsense, for adults as well as children. Maybe they are a starting…"
"Zoe - My total early morning bump starts at around 4AM and is currently about .10 per hour (.45 to .55). I was waking up around 130 or so and the increase was designed to take the numbers down a bit. I haven't had the experience of having to…"
Thanks anyway.I have started a discussion about the play button not working and so far have received no replies.I was composing my own tunes for the reminders which I use all the time.I get so tired of Mary Had A Little Lamb.If you know what I mean?
Hi Zoe I was just reading some of the posts online about EZ ManagerMax.My Ezmanager max3.06 does not work my custom composer.When I hit the play button the tune doesnot play.I called Animas and they told me they would send the 3.07 version.What is the difference between the two.I just hope the 3.07 version works better.
You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!
Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!
Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.
I hope you have gone to your local shelter to scout for a new Kitteh friend. Last time I only made it to month 3 before I went and found Miss Kitka. She chose me, not the other way around ha ha!!! Animal friends understand chronic illness much better than any human I have found. She is known as her royal highness, princess, and many more names and is always close to me when I need her. She does not mind being an indoor cat and I hung a bird feeder outside a window where I placed a perch for her. Being diabetic for 53 years and ultradian bipolar since 1963, she always is near when I need her. Cats should be in charge of the world and then it would be great place for sure. Don
