Dr. wants me in this area due to lows while on Pump
?? what area is that? Is is higher than you are comfortable with?
Dr. whants me to try to keep my BG between 120 and 160
Is tht OK w/ you? Another question I'd ask is does your doc give you clear directions on keeping it in a 40 point range? It's pretty easy to say but can be a bit more challenging to actually do it? I have the alarms on my pump set at 70-130, which is a bit wider, but I try to keep it under pretty tight control most of the time. I will sort of drag or feel "slushy" much more than 150?
He told me I should get no higher then 160. I was dropping to Low 35 at Home and work. Since he raised Im feeling Good. I now am watched 24 hours a day to make sure. Maybe the MS is playing with me I don't know. The Diabetes Doctors are blaming MS for possible lows and MS Doctors are blaming Diabetes. After 3 weeks in Hospital they didn't know for sure
That seems pretty reasonable then? If you are having to deal with MS too, I believe that a lot of docs want you to be up a bit so they don't have to deal with hypos, etc. while they are trying to figure that out?
