This is one of those areas of my diabetes management where I am almost at the point of just throwing up my hands and saying, “I give up”. I know that we all have those moments where we feel like giving up on something, diabetes related or not, but I know that I can’t. It is just becoming frustrating beyond belief as to why I can’t seem to figure this out.
I have taken insulin 10 minutes before meal time, 20 minutes before, even 30 minutes before meal time! None of them seem to work. My average spike is about 75-100 higher. I’ll go from 125 to 200 easily after a meal and then it takes a while to come down.
I have tried different sites, even “virgin sites” as my endo referred to them. To make sure that after 7 years on a pump that it’s not the site areas that are giving me the problems. That is another topic for another day.
I am using Apidra with a pump.
Anybody have any advice?
