Nothing Else to Blame...

So I guess it is just me. Despite going off the pump and switching insulin, my morning highs are persisting with a fierce determination. I am taking a deep breath and will try to forget those few weeks of easy and beautiful control and just deal with the situation. Perhaps it is better not to wonder why I need more insulin despite exercising more and losing weight and just take it. It is hard to really believe I need as much as I seem to. For example, as of 10 AM today, I had taken as much insulin (~20 units) as I took for the entire day a few weeks ago. Thanks to some great help from Matt Corcoran and a few friends, I am not figuring this out alone.

That sucks. I'm sort of dealing with similar issues---not being to get new sets inserted that work and not being able to figure out why. Good luck in figuring it all out.

And good luck with the race!

Ug. This is one of the many things that makes living with diabetes so difficult sometimes.

Hopefully you'll get it all figured out and back to feeling good without too much trouble.

Keep us posted!
