Hm, let's see. What was my last blood sugar?
When did I eat last? How much did I bolus? Did I underestimate the carbs? Does my insulin to carb ratio need some work?
When did I put this pump site in? Do I need to change it? How does the site look? Any blood around the site? Does it smell like insulin? Are there big bubbles in the tubing or reservoir?
Is something else going on? Do I need a temp basal rate? Am I getting sick? Could it be hormones? I feel ok. Maybe stress? Am I stressed? I mean, I am now. But was I feeling stressed or upset before?
Has my insulin gone bad? Did the insulin in the reservoir get too warm? When did I open the vial? Should I try a new vial?
AHHHH!!! I FEEL LIKE I'M LOSING MY MIND!
Ok Jess, deep breath. Take a correction bolus, drink some water, and wait. Check your bg again in an hour and we'll go from there.
The variables can be totally overwhelming. But I can do this.
