    What is stopping the insulin from working? 2 corrections and still not going down.

    Impossible to say, it’s one of the most frustrating things about T1. Could you maybe have a hot shower or bath? That often kicks it into action for me. But try not to “rage bolus” it into submission.

    Assuming it’s not your time of the month ;)

    Haha. No, I’m being careful but unfortunately it’s lunch time so back on the rollercoaster again. And it’s gonna be a carby one. Nothing in the house but pasta!

    @mountaintom this was mine yesterday. I took eleven separate shots of NovoSluggish and it just didn’t budge.

    Weird. There must be something at play. Something metabolic.

    In my case it’s what we call “shark week” ;) Insulin resistance for six days makes me even snappier than usual... :grumpy:

    Now I've been saying to my OH for ages that it seems like novorapid sits in my system doing f-all until I start to move. Then bam - floods system and drops me from 14 to hypo in less than an hour. Can't be injection sites with me because I've only been diagnosed for 10 months.

    This thread is really cheering me up about my unstable BG levels. Makes me realise I'm not alone

    Just be careful of stacking too much or you might have one of them lovely falling off the top of Everest drops out of nowhere and knock yourself out. If you can I'd suggest going for a short walk or something.

    Yeah thanks I don’t want that. I’m about to stack some carbs in so should be ok. I’ll take my normal ratio for lunch and then see how we are mid afternoon. This thread is fascinating because I didn’t think EVERYBODY had these kinds of ups and downs. I thought you guys were all ninjas.

    Nah, not a ninja in sight! Some days I’m convinced I’ve got it nailed, and then the diabetes fairy kicks me in the arse. In 20 years of T1, I have only had three 24hour periods then I’ve stayed completely within my range.

    Three.

    Out of 7,341 days with it.

    Obviously we are ninjas, just not of the glucose control kind.

    I'm a viking, not a ninja. Rushing in head first and just burn things down. ;)

    I use Dexxies. Jelly babies get eaten by other people in our house.

    Perhaps I should live stream a massive hypo. Raise awareness.
