To pump or not to pump?

Hello world,

My name is Ali. .. I am 21 - and my world got tipped on it's end last September 25th when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes...

I did really well for the first few months! I had consistent bg levels in the low 100's, etc - and then the Christmas invasion of candied confections hit; wonderful pies, and other such sweetness hit me like a train of temptation bound for diabetes hell.

I injected a lot of insulin - and I gained weight. A lot of the weight… Continue

Crazy unpredictable blood sugars

I have been working a whole year, since I became completely blind in my left eye, to get my sugars in the Doctor Bernstein range. December 2011 my A1C was 6.6% and in April 2012 6.5%. My weekly average had come down to 6.0. But then 3 weeks ago, my sugar just went haywire. Usually for 5 grams of carbohydrate, I inject 1 unit of Apidra. Now when I eat 10 grams of carbohydrate and I inject 2 units Apidra my sugar went up to 17.5 mmol/L. I ate low gi carbohydrates?!?!

When I wake up, my…
