Of course, it's a short drive.
Seriously. Overall, my control hasn't been bad. But I've been hitting a low every evening. I've been tracking my TDD closely and it has dropped. Those of you who pump understand that if your TDD drops, you have to adjust everything.
I keep a spreadsheet of the 14 day average, which also calculates boluses based on the rule of 500 and corrections based on the rule of 1800. I try to use those numberes as references, but adjust both boluses and corrections conservatively.
However, I got so tired of being low, especially in the evening, this morning, I just broke down and moved all my corrections up to 40, hoping that will solve the problem -- which is what my spreadsheet says they should be. I also adjusted my non-regular boluses to 11 -- again, what my spreadsheets says they should be, just in case. I am still being conversative about my meal time boluses, only adjusting them according to my meter readings.
Here's what I do. If I start seeing consistantly post pranial readings of under 130, I'll up the carb ratio. If I see post pranial reading over 150 consistantly, I drop the carb ratio. And I always change just be one.
I do the same thing on corrections, but they can be hard to see if I correct too close to a meal. I'm hoping it will all balance out in a few days. Like I said, it's driving me nuts.
I don't know if I'm losing weight, I kind of doubt it, since I"m having to eat to avoid treatable lows.
