You don't say what kind of diet you are following, nor what your test results have shown. My demon is snacking in mid-evening…around 8 pm, I really want to eat something. If I don't, my bedtime BG's are good…if I do, they tend to be high. Sometimes, a pump infusion site can get clogged which will reduce the effectiveness of the insulin delivery. If I experience several unexplained highs over 250, I was advised to change out the infusion set (in your case it would be your pod) and the infusion site. Often, in these instances, I've found blood in the cannula or a bruise at the site. I'm also assuming that you are rotating your pod sites to prevent the development of scar tissue which will also impede insulin effectiveness.
