Hi Again Lesbemus!
I was dxd. with severe RA 31+ years ago. I have been on and off Prednisone through those years, high doses then tapered down each time. This last stint with Prednisone started 9 years ago and I've run out of medication that works, so I'm on it for the long haul also. I am sorry that you have been diagnosed with COPD.
I was wondering if the cannula on your site may be kinked? Or perhaps your site is in an area with scar tissue?
I was bolusing Insulin in the earlier years when I was on high Prednisone but I was taking so much Insulin to try to catch up to it. For years now I've raised my Basal Insulin slowly instead which of course runs for 24 hours. I use the Bolus Insulin to cover the food that I eat and a small amount more if I need to correct for a high, if need be. I do test often. Also eating low carb meals helps a lot. The less carbs I consume, the less Insulin I need along with my exercise.
