can't get my bgl down!
I woke up in the middle of the night with The Thirst. My bgl was 347! I did a correction bolus (I'm on a pump), drank a bottle of water, and went back to sleep. When I got up for work 3 hours later, my bgl was 306. I did a correction bolus with a syringe (in case it was something with my pump) and...
