Sh*t

Posted on August 9, 2008 at 8:07pm 15 Comments

Today at work, my pump is beeping like mad. I check to see what all the rukus is about.



HOLY COW!



16.3 units left.



Dammit, I forgot to change it this morning before I left work. (always in a rush in the morning, thats how I roll) Anyway, I actually IM one of my internet IM buddies to ask how long 16 units will last. She told me to check the pump because it gives you a count down. So I did. It said 15:10, so basically I had 15 hours left before it had no insulin.… Continue

Everyday me and Mr. D would get up, eat breakfast together, take the train to work, have… Continue

I need advice. What do you all do to prevent a low at the gym. I know I keep harping on this subject but I seem to really be struggling.



Last night I turned my pump to a 50% basal an hour before working out. I checked my blood it was at 115 before going into the class, so I took some sips of Gatorade and turned my pump to a basal of 0% for the remainder of the time I would be working out just like the diabetes team told me to do.



Halfway through the class I am in, I am… Continue
