I have had ( but not recently) hypos that just won't finish --
as you are pumping it is totally unlikely to be some "pooled" insulin
Hi Paul - Thanks for bringing that up, but does pumping preclude pooled insulin? What about those times when you are lobbing in corrections and it just looks like you are bolussing water... could that not cause pooled insulin - or rather, might the bolusses you made have been pooling?
the metformin , walking , and an overestimation of your carbs appear to have combined I don't disagree that it could well have been the combination as you say... I am just mystified as to why it took so long and so many carbs to fix it. It's never happened to me before. Once before when I visited the physio and she did some work on my buttocks saying they were bumpy, I had a series of hypos for the rest of the day, but I could get BGs up between them.
sorry for late reply ------- have been reading through some older threads and came across this one.
my honest answer is that as we are only injectiong ( through cannula) 1 insulin -- it makes the pooled long acting question start to disappear
but as to whether we can have a crap day BG wise -- and then at a point in time either days , weeks , or months later have a sustained hypo due to pooling --
that is sort of a million pound question ( in the diabetic lottery world ) LOL
