So last night, we ate dinner much later than we normally we do.
I bolused for the (awesome) food we all ate last night, and 1 hour and 50 minutes after taking insulin, I tested so i could go to sleep‚ since it was 11:30‚ i was 61! I put my pump on temporary basal of 0.1 over 1 hour, and ate 8 Wheat Thins, and drank ½ cup of Apple Juice. I stayed up another hour, since there was a good movie to watch that could kill time.
At 12:30, I tested again and i was 68! “Come on!!!” I thought to myself, no more juice!! I then turned my pump down again at 0.1 for 2 hours now. I drank more apple juice and had another couple of wheat thins (10 carbs, not including the juice!)
I thought I would be okay until the morning, so i didn‚Äôt set my annoying clock to wake up 2 hours later and check!
That was BIG Mistake!!!!
Because this morning, when i tested when we woke up at 9:20!!
my meter read: 355!!!!!!!
I was stunned and confused, and really frustrated. (to be truthful)
I was hungry.
I bolused 2 units extra to get the insulin going‚ and waited like 1 hour and 10 minutes and tested, and i had already came down to 237, but by 11:15, i was 158!
I ate breakfast, and bolused plently.
2 hours later, i was 147‚ niiiice. —–
