I've experienced a problem a few times that I must be incorrectly correcting... so thought I'd ask for input:
I checked my blood sugar and all was well 5.3mmol/L
Was outside with friends on a hot, sticky day, holding my baby, moving about, and felt a sharp site pain.
Checked it out and seemed as though the tape from the Quickset infusion site had unstuck, so I patted it back down.
2 hours later (no food intake and a 20min walk taken) I am at 11.4mmol/L
I decided to change the site and discovered that the teflon needle wasn't even within the skin! It had come out and when I pressed the tape back down it just stayed pressed up against my skin. (eeeeeee!!!!)
So, gave corrective dose with pen needle and changed site, but what to do with the 2hours of missing basal?
Generally, my basals are programmed anticipating a 2 hour reaction time, but when I tried a 2 hour increased basal (or square bolus) to compensate for the exact amount I lost (when I unplugged a few weeks back for a 30min swim), it didn't work
It really sucks but I'm sure this can't be a first for all of you, can it?
