So I did a really stupid thing last night.
I’m on a pump, as most of you know. When my pump gets down to about thirty units of insulin, it will start warning me that I need to change out my infusion set and the reservoir. Last night, I ignored the warning.
Did you know that even when the pump thinks it is out of insulin, it will still continue to deliver insulin for several more hours?
I discovered this by accident a few weeks ago. So, when I went to bed last night, I thought I was okay.
I was wrong.
Woke up to a 436 this morning.
That’s the highest I have been in a very long time.
Never ignore the warnings on your pump!
