I was on day 2 of my pod yesterday. It was working fine, absorption normal. After dinner I did a bit of rowing and stretches to combat after dinner spikes. This worked fine. I went from around 130 downto around 70. Shortly thereafter I had to change my sensor. That is when I noticed my BGs climbed to the 170s and basically stayed around there the rest of the night, overnight, and all morning, despit doubling my basal, and taking lots of corrections. I finally changed the pod and within an hour or so I started to come down.
So it seems the pod was bad. I know that can happen, but is there any way I can confirm that is going on without actually replacing it? I mean, I didn’t feel the pod move or shift during exercise. I’m thinking that is what happened though, or it could just be coincidental? The pod looked normal, no blood, or leakage around the site when I removed it. But all of the copious amounts of insulin coming from it barely kept me below 200!
Just wondering if others experience this, and if there is a good way to circumvent the persistent highs due to poor absorption from the pod!
