Hey everyone, I know it's been a while! I am finally on a pump, have been officially for one month!
Things have been going fairly well, my team is slowly making adjustments to get my numbers situated, but I definitely feel a bajillion times better!…
With the exception of this week. Monday afternoon I started experiencing a sore throat. Since then, my sinuses have been completely against me. Ha. But really. Runny nose all day, swollen glands off and on, sore throat in the morning (it fades away and returns off and on as the day goes on), and I've been sneezing a lot more (something I don't usually do, unless my sugars are extremely high). On top of my sinus bug, my levels have been pretty consistent in the high range. The past few days I hadn't been able to get below 160, and I was lucky to be under 200. Lots of checking, only a small trace of ketones, and lots of correction boluses. A couple of hours ago I checked and it was 378! *eek I know!* I had a small snack because I was hungry (almonds, a cutie, and some Immune+ from Emergen-C). I bolused and corrected, then checked about 20 minutes ago to make sure my levels were dropping even just a little…102!!! Uhhh..yay? Ha. I've never seen my numbers drop so fast. And I checked 6 minutes later, because I was questioning my meter and that good of a number…83. And I still have 3 units on board from the correction and bolus earlier.
My question is…is this normal when you're not feeling the greatest? Should it be something I worry about?
I guess what they say is true…you really do learn something new every day. :/
