Default Blood sugar go high

Hello,

My blood sugar has been high since past few days. Until this morning it hit 329. I don't know what I do wrong. My pump sites put in wrong area or my body, or the meter is not reading right. I did call the doctor about it and they said change the sites and change the battery on meter and give me some kind of liquid thing that will read meter if it bad or good, and call them back on Friday if the sugar remain same. But I don't feeling very well and very tired and have no energy. I do walking lot yesterday and the sugar did not go down lot. I don't know that I did wrong with this.

they say that Diabetes is a progressive disease... (Im not agreeing with this BUT)

I think diet plays a large role even for type 1 diabetics. So what is your diet? what do you eat on a typical day?

I agree with the doctors office: change your infusion site. If that doesn't help, the recommendation is to correct using an injection instead of the pump to make sure that it's being delivered properly.

If the correction doesn't work, your insulin may be bad, so open up a new bottle and try correcting (again with a pen or syringe not the pump) with fresh insulin. Make sure it is not expired, or has been exposed to high temperatures or left out of the refrigerator.

Since your blood sugar is so high, make sure to test often and drink a lot of water. This will help prevent dehydration. Watch out of symptoms of DKA and call your doctor if changing the site and correcting using a pen or syringe doesn't bring your blood sugar down.

I did change my sites and I went out walk for like 2 hours and it finally went down.
I did eat the same diet I eat since. Protein, fruit, veg, and some starch. I use 4 unit insulin of 40 carbs for a meal. I use my novlog (spelling?) pen incase if something happened.

starches and fruits will raise your BG. The less you eat of these items, the more stable your BG can be. it depends on many factors but people have gotten off of medications after changing their lifestyle to a LCHF way of living.

I know that they have a high carbs. I use them very little like 1/4 of them on my meals. To prevent from low sugar, eat 1/4 fruit or starches help to balance my sugar level. There are some days the sugar levels was great but there are some time not great and I eat less of them and still levels go high no matter what.

Rose is a type 1 diabetic, insulin is more than appropriate, but absolutely necessary. Let's stick to constructive comments related to the question at hand, and leave the diet advice for when it is asked for.

Yay! I'm glad it finally came down. Has your blood sugar been behavior more predictably since? Hopefully it was just a one time thing.

I'm also type 1 and my sugars always ran high until I went low carb. Sure I could get them to come down with insulin but they always jumped back up, even with the 'correct dose'. And even now I still get days of high readings, I don't know the cause. I just try to correct it with higher insulin doses, I do injections though. No pump. I really try not to worry over a day or two of high readings, even though I feel like crap. And sometimes exercise can raise my sugar, not always though. Is it possible you ate something new? Some foods spike my sugar even thought they shouldn't. Like some types of cheese, oddly enough. Or maybe you need to adjust your insulin. Stress too can raise sugars, though it lowers mine it seems.
