I have been having some issues with BG control lately, mostly because I don't have my CGM. I can't get another transmitter for at least a month (long story), and I am kind of flying blind until that time. I have noticed that my basals have been steadily increasing over time since my diagnosis. I assume that this, in general, is relatively normal (certainly not unheard of). However, my basal rates are really starting to make me wonder if I am doing something wrong. My current rates are: 12AM - 1.0 u/ hr 4AM - 1.5 u/ hr 8AM - 3.8 u/ hr 12PM - 3.750 u / hr 3PM - 3.85 u / hr 6PM - 3.2 u / hr 9PM - 3.1 u / hr Total basal: 66.9 units! This seems to be a lot of insulin to me! I am slightly overweight (5'7'' and 190lbs), but I don't know if that could be a problem here. I have eliminated a site problem, because I've tried just about everywhere on my body and the basal that I need never changes. It's really strange because, a few days ago, I was still on lantus after going into the hospital for various things. I switched to MDI to offer myself a pump break and to make it easier on the hospital staff while they fixed me up. Anyway, I was only on 42 units of lantus! My BGs were still in range; in fact, they were lower than usual! I've talked to my endo, and she is just as confused as I am. Is there something that I am not seeing?
