Ugh. I hate being sick with diabetes! For the past four days or so I've had a nasty cold. Took two days off work because of it and am hoping I'm better on Monday. I am taking ridiculous amounts of insulin and still running high. The past four days I have had a total of 11 readings below 8.3 (150) which is pretty bad when you consider I test 8-10x per day. My 7-day average is 12.1 (218).
I've been sticking to 15g of carbohydrates for most meals and am still spiking to around 14 (250) regularly. I put all my pump settings up, am using a 1:6 ratio and an ISF of 1 mmol/L and my basal rate totals almost 30u and I am still doing corrections every few hours. The past four days I've taken 70-80+ units per day which is crazy for how I've been eating.
My co-worker who I share an office with (an actual room) had bronchitis last week and I'm pretty sure I have whatever she has. Except I don't have bronchitis, which is good! I haven't had a cold bad enough to make me miss work for multiple days in years. I think 2006 was the last time I had a major cold.
