I have been posting lately about my highs … which are not yet better 😦
This has been going on for about a month now and I’m so over it. Nothing I’m trying seems to be working. Increased basals, new sites, new insulin, temp basals, etc. Last week I started to freak out a little. I tried calling my CDE – she was out of the office. I decided maybe I should go back on shots, just to rule out a pump malfunction .. so I left two messages for my new Endo but they never returned my call. 😦
One of the main reasons I stayed with my old Endo as many years as I did was because he had his own practice, and it was a very small office and I could always talk to his nurse and get what I needed. He was not as hands on or proactive as I’d like, so I ultimately made the decision to find a new practice. I knew going into a large practice that I’d lose the one on one factor, but I didn’t realize how much I’d miss that till last week when they didn’t return my call.
I was very specific in the two messages I left- that my blood sugars had been very high and I wanted to try going back on shots for a few days. But that I needed direction from the dr because I have been back on the pump for 8 yrs now so I had no idea where to start with a sliding scale, and I’d also need an Rx for Lantus.
So the no returned call thing bugs me. I do have an appointment with him in 2 weeks but I do NOT want this to drag out another two weeks.
This morning, for example, I was in a fine range when I woke up. Bolused for my 28g for breakfast. And while I sat at work I started to feel sick to my stomach – checked my bg and I was 396. Out of nowhere. *sigh*
Something needs to change …. I just need direction on what else we can try??
