Been a type 1 for 33 years, just got back on the Minimed system after a long hiatus from pumps. Work 12 hour hospital shifts at night, which don’t always leave me a lot of time to play around with diabetes stuffs.
My issue, in nights I’m working at around 9pm my BS always raises to 170s on auto mode regardless of my 5pm meal. Doesn’t happen when I set the basil rate only when Auo-Mode chooses my micro boluses. I see it usually gives me a capped amount of .12 or rarely .125 units for a few hours, then asks for a BS for running at max. Then it runs at nuthin for 4+ hours (BS slowly going down, includes 11pmish mini meal) and asks again.
Doesn’t happen during days I sleep at night. Basically wondering if there is a trick to tell the pump it can give me .14 or .15 instead of capping me at .12 since I suspect it would solve the issue. I know the answer in prolly no but popping up to 170s for hours on end leaves me feeling Ill all night.
