where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I didn't want to go to bed anyway... Sugars are Hi. I think my infusion stuffed up. Just changed and increased my basal and took another corrective dose. Ketones are 1. Hopefully my levels come down

Just make sure you don't crash when you do come down in the middle of the night especially since you changed your basal

Thank you**** I only upped my basal for an hour but before changing I had a large correction then took a smaller after changing

How about a little exercise before bed or a warm shower ?

I had a really hot bath earlier tonight. Exercise and I don't go together either. I checked my sugars off my other hand and it actually showed 31 instead of Hi so hopefully it's coming down. Just don't understand how they are that high in the first place

I have been told that if it is high and shouldn't be to wash your hands again and retest. It could be picking up something on your hands. Hope you didn't take too much insulin if that's the case or you will be up all night.

Thanks**** My levels started coming down so I went to bed and tested every hour or so. Just got up (8.30am) and sugars are down to 12 which is much better than 32+

So glad you are feeling better!
