Altitude in Arizona

Grand Canyon fam picHi everyone! My school had spring break this week so I went to Arizona with my family. We stayed in Sedona which has an altitude of 4,500 feet. It was really interesting to see how this altitude affected my blood sugars. The entire time I was in Arizona, my blood sugars ran extremely high. I had to make multiple basal adjustments for during both the day and night and was still higher than I would’ve liked. However now that I’m back in New York, I have been lower. I am not sure the exact reasons as to why my blood sugar ran high at a significantly higher altitude, but I just thought it was interesting! Has anyone else had this experience?
