Riddle me this...

Why, when we do an unscheduled pod change at 2 am, does Elise require no increased temp basal to offset the post-change highs?

But if we do a pod change during the day, we have to temp basal as much as 75% for over four hours just to keep her in range?

Why must you be such a pain-in-the-ass diabetes?

  2. Seriously. I N-E-V-E-R know if she's going to go high or be fine post pod change. Although for some reason I find if I do it during the day, her post pod change numbers are better than if I do it before bed-time. And at least I can correct them down without having to set an alarm clock :) Stupid post pod change highs.

  3. Hmmmm....stupid diabetes...that is my answer!

    I find the same thing, too...Bean still needs a little 'boost' with a new pod, but it's less if it's a middle of the night change! Maybe because there's less sugar to deal with while they sleep?!?!

  5. Ava is at diabetes sleep away camp (best thing ever!!!) and I have no idea what they are doing re: pod changes. At home we were doing a full extra unit from the old pod +30% for 4 hours on the new pod. It sounds like a lot of insulin for all the craziness and running around at camp. She has a smile in all her photos so things must be ok. Thrilled to hear Elise got to enjoy camp! Just think - she might be going to sleep away camp in a few short years!!
