I’ve been on CIQ for about 1 month. The best thing about it is the overnight stable blood sugars. If that was the only benefit, well worth it for me. But there is one thing that really frustrates me and I don’t quite understand is exercise mode and correction boluses.
The target in exercise mode is140-160 which for me is fine since as I tend to trend low during physical activity. This weekend I was out hiking and running low so took some glucose which quickly raised my BG. Then as normal it levels out and slowly begins to drop as I continue my hike. So the frustrating part is my BS was going up so quick the algorithm calculated that I was going to be out of range and gave a correction bolus. Which was the last thing I needed and then caused me to crash.
It’s done that a couple times and makes me not trust exercise mode. I wish exercise mode didn’t do correction boluses (fine with basil adjustments). It just seems obvious that glucose use during exercise is going to cause problems with the algorithm.
Curious how loop handles exercise and correction boluses?
