Here is another post for my run today using Loop and OmniPod. I feel that Loop definitely helps control my BGs pre, during, and post running. For me, there is no doubt that my Time in Range and my Standard Deviation has improved over pre-Loop, and I think my Tidepool graphs show this improvement. Hence, this will be my last post in this thread on Running with OmniLoop. If someone would like me to continue with these posts please let me know.
Today’s run went very well, no lows or highs!! Since I was on the low side, I ate part a small, banana at run start.
11:50 Activate Running Override (Loop switches basal to ZB), BG 88
12:34 Run start, BG 79, eat part of small banana @12g
12:44 3 Fruit Gummies, 8g, BG 77
14:05 Run end, BG 95, deactivated Running Override in Loop
Run time: 90 minutes
Distance: 8.1 miles
Loop did a fantastic job again!!
However, this morning was a struggle, due to the fact that I changed my sensor at midnight. BG was 73, so I had 2 bites of a banana, maybe 6g?? I woke up 2 hours later high at 145, definitely higher than expected! I took a correction, and by 6 AM when I got up it was 65. Good, but the sensor seemed to be unstable all morning with readings jumping up and down sometimes 15+. I also changed my OmniPod today which usually causes my sensitivity to insulin to go way down. These all contributed to my low TiR, and higher SD Nothing to do with Loop or running, but I need to find some better workarounds for these issues!! I’m thankful neither issues really caused problems with my run
Here is my Tidepool from today:
