We;re going thru some similar crap over here. I've upped O's overnight basals, but she was 419 at 2:30 this morning. Sucks sweaty donkey balls. I wish I could figure it out. My only suggestion is maybe your breakfast ratio needs adjusting?

It's always soul crushing for me when I cross over into 500-land. I feel like such a failure.

That is certainly a very bouncy day or two. Unfortunately, you won't be able figure out what's causing it without basal tests, carb ratio tests, and detailed recording of your carb intake (and even then you may not figure it all out, but it should improve the situation).

It's a lot of work, but you can do it.

Also, it might be worth trying a different vial of insulin if a second pump change doesn't do the trick. It is possible that the vial you're using may have spoiled. Don't know, just a thought.

Hopefully your next few days will be a bit more tame.

Jeez, this seems to be going around. Frustrating.

I'm sorry.

I hope the pattern has changed..... But there really isn't enough info there to give any advice! One has to keep track of food eaten, exercise taken, insulin taken, comparison to other days. All I can assume is that the irritation and stress level was HIGH. It will get better. Just try and figure out one thing at a time from that list of Scott's! It is hard but can do it!
