What a sleepless night last night! Guess I'm having a wee bit of bad luck with my last two sites! First site I YANKED out the other night at work (whoops!!....yeah, I usually use tape on my leg sites but went without that time...good reminder!!!)
So last night I went to sleep, everything seemed fine. BG 4.6, felt good and sleepy!!
I woke at 2am to my high BG alarm. I have it set at 8.0 mmol/L. I did a test to confirm, sure enough.....so I took a small correction bolus and told my pump to stop waking me :)
Couple hours later (it's all a little fuzzy.....was in a deep sleep!!) my pump had the nerve to wake me again!
This sensor told me I was passing my high BG setting again! What's up? Again tested, and had to take an even bigger correction bolus....back to sleep I went.
I woke in the morning to a higher then normal BG. I was sucking back the insulin all night, why was I high still??? Hmmm.....low reservoir....maybe a bubble? I was not out of insulin, just low.
So this morning started with a cup of coffee and a site change. I pulled out my well secured thigh site and a large outflow of insulin went running down my leg. OH LOOK, there is my boluses.....not in my blood stream where I wanted them, but nicely stored right around my cannula and now mobile around my knee.
That explains everything!
No kink in the line....just lack of absorption.
Fresh new site in now!! It is another 13mm silhouette, trying sample #2. Good insertion, I have high hopes :)
