      Have you gotten a firm diagnosis of celiac?

      I saw your post and didn't want to derail the thread.
      My first thought about preventing rather than reacting to numbers is to think about how you're reacting now, and to keep a log. For example, if you keep seeing higher numbers on weekends, you can give a higher Levemir dose just for weekends.
      If you'd like me to help with particulars, you can post about what's going on and plenty of people will chime in with particulars, possibly including me, you can send me a PM, and you can send me an email. I reply to all messages and emails that ask questions, although not always especially promptly.

      Should definitely have said "try" to take charge!
      We sure go through hills and valleys, I'm sure you know what I mean. ;) If you look at my previous posts, I've had a few bad months, but we're coming out of the hole now.
      These two members, along with a few others and just this board in general, really helped me turn the corner, though, on my thinking about managing this disease. I don't know where I'd be if I still relied on my health care team to spot trends and make changes. For one thing, I wouldn't be with this health care team -- I switched to them, and I have learned to dodge the guys I don't think are helpful and cling to the folks who are!

      cont. . .

      Our endo did not want us on the CGM (but he's a good endo so he backed us up), we had to figure that out on our own. Our pump training was disastrous, so we had to scrap it and start from scratch ourselves. We've switched insulins, changed basals, temp basaled, switched sets. That's the kind of thing I mean. We've been in reactive mode very often, but we've been able to come out of it and get ahead of the beast again largely because of the folks here. It doesn't mean I do what they say, necessarily, but information and opinions here go into my brain and connect later. For example, wilf and LF helped me figure out how to go to Regular insulin if I wanted to. I never did that. But I'm now pumping semi-untethered and loving it, and that road led here.
      PM or send me a message any time, if I'm reading your dates right you're still early in the game. You know what they keep saying -- think marathon, not sprint. :(
