I am so frustrated I could scream! No matter how hard we try, no matter what we do we just cannot seem to get Nate into those 'middle' numbers.
Here's a good example -
1:30 AM - 89 treated with 10g of carbs IOB
7:00 AM - 108 Yippeee
8:45 AM - 88 15g for snack time
10:30 AM - 55 AWESOME!
2:00 PM - 221 10g snack
4:00 PM - 63
6:30 PM - 79
1:00 AM - 99 (treated with 7 carbs - lots of IOB)
7:00 AM - 215
9:15 AM - 240
10:31 AM - 40 - Really? WTH?
10:54 AM - 188 after 15g of carbs
1:51 PM - 225
3:00 PM - 222
1:30 AM - 259
6:47 AM - 270
9:00 AM - 266
10:35 AM - 212
11:20 AM - 50
I'm too tired to go get the meter to get the numbers for the rest of the day! They were all in the 200's.
Nate is on a constant carbohydrate diet which is counting carbohydrates in portion sizes called carb choices and eating the same number of carb choices at each meal. Currently, he eats 30-35 carbs at each meal and 15-20 carbs at snack. Now obviously being a 1 year old if he doesn't want to eat 15 carbs at snack there is really not much I can do about it. I am not going to force him to eat because then we both just end of crying!
Nate's schedule goes a little something like this . .
7a - Check BG, Eat 30-35g and Inject H3, N3
9a - Check BG, Eat 15-20g
11a - Check BG, Eat 30-35g, Correct if necessarry
12p - NAP
3p - Check BG, Eat 15-20g
5p - Check BG, Eat 30-35g, Inject H1
7p - Check BG, Eat 15-20g, Inject N0.5 (just reduced from N1 due to lows at night)
130a - Check BG and then depending on that # do it again 1t 2:20 or 3:00
I just want to be in the middle! Why can't we get there? What are we doing to him? I feel so bad - all of these highs and lows make him feel so lousy and don't even get me started thinking about what they are doing to hit little bitty organs!!
I can't figure out what is peaking when and why and just wish today that I didn't have to do it!
Poor everyone dealing with the D.
