These last few days have felt pretty miserable.
I've been super high for super long, and it's taking super-basals and super-boluses to even make a dent in it. I've been running a 180% temp basal for about six days, but unless I also supercharge my mealtime insulin (with SUPER EXTRA mealtime insulin), this happens:
I feel almost constantly bloated. I am ALWAYS THIRSTY. I feel sloshy from all the water I'm drinking, and I've had a low, throbbing headache for about 3 days now.
Ketones haven't been an issue yet, which is lucky because usually I'll get things under control then stupidly think that I can eat, which -- WHAM! -- causes more super-highs.
I have checked my sites. None of this is from an infusion set issue. That's about the only troubleshooting I've managed to do.
It's like this horrible stupid cycle.
