    Hi

    Felt a bit yuk & tested...my meter says 'hi' I haven't experienced a level so high that it doesn't give a number, in years! Can't find anywhere how high is 'hi' - I'm thinking 30+??? Anyone know?

    (Canula was dodgy. I've had a big bolus so will retest in 20)

    Thanks :)

    @weeezer hope you've had a good night's sleep and are feeling okay. I'm amazed how quickly a dodgy cannula can send my sugars into Crazyland - fortunately it hasn't happened very often (yet!) in my experience.

    Have a great day!

    :)

    I've had the same and ended up being a bad site I put the cannula in! This morning being a prime example! Work up with slightly higher bg and had to change cannula anyway and tested an hour later and bg had risen dramatically so had to change cannula again!

    Yeah my sugar went to 30 the other day so not good, saw consultant today and like guys here advised change sites as it can get clogged and take ages to bring levels down. Also having to do some fasting as my liver keeps pushing out sugar
