I am getting an MRI on Friday so I need to remove my diabetes equipment (Omnipod and CGM) for a couple of hours. The lady on the phone says about 75 minutes laying around in the MRI so I probably will be without my pump about 2 hours. I am pumping with Fiasp.
When I did MDI this was an easy thing, now I have choices (Argh…) and I need to choose, so I am throwing it out for suggestions.
Here is what I am thinking after I rip off the POD:
- Give a bolus to cover the next 2-ish hours of basal.
- Give a shot of levemir to cover the next 12 hours of basal and go pump free for 12 hours.
Option 1 is the most appealing, but with Fiasp I am worried that the basal would drop me low too quickly. And I do not want to be low.
