Had my first on-pump hypo yesterday but I can pin that on additional activity and a delayed lunch. Been experimenting with combo boluses and put in a reduced basal rate for a couple of hours to allow me to walk around Edinburgh without the worry of another hypo. Still getting peaks during the night and will be glad when I’ve got this aspect sorted as I don’t want to have to get up at 2 or 3 am for the rest of my life. So far, so good. No sky-high readings and just the one hypo. Tomorrow is the one-week mark, so I’m hoping that the honeymoon won’t be over then. Funny thing is, it feels totally normal now having this wee blue box attached to my side and I’ve already got used to not reaching for my pen after meals. All the paperwork is a bit of a pain in the arse, though, so it will be a relief when I don’t have to fill in forms in triplicate every time I look at a biscuit.
