I had my blood draw for my A1C this morning. I am a quick draw but a frequent bruiser. That’s the endo office – the tall white one the water.
When I woke up this morning, I looked at my pump. There were about 20 units left. My TDD is about 35, so it was bordering on plenty to get me home from work.
That is, unless part of my job today was to to host a formal 5 course meal include both sorbet after the salad course and a dessert. As yes, and if I had not seen a 266 at the start of the meal.
I bolused for the meal and then heard a strange beeping a few moments later. I looked at the others at my table and said “Do you hear that beeping? I don’t think it’s me. It could be me… yup it’s me” The pump was black-circle empty.
When I got home tonight at 8:30, rang in at a lovely 381.
The pump should definitely have a alarm screen – USER ERROR.
