(Sorry Facebook Friends - I know you have already had to endure this roller coaster ride today)
* Above photos were taken today after Super Bolus, no correction, and 7g of banana uncovered around 10:15 AM.
I am obviously trying to eliminate that AM spike but it seems no matter what I do it's always there. I do believe it has a lot to do with the massive growth spurts that Nate goes through and the increased alkaline phosphatase when he is having these major growing spurts (note to Nate - please stop growing! You are my baby boy!!) I have increased his basal starting at 5:30 AM, reduced his I:C ratio for breakfast and for the past two days tried the Super Bolus trick I learned from Lorraine.
I received a lot of feedback today on Facebook from other D-rents that all said that with the wee ones -- their DexComs look like this is the AM too. I hate to say it but it is so true - - - misery loves company!! Thanks everyone for your words of wisdom and encouragement! Seriously, I am relieved to know that I am not the only one that is riding the roller coaster every morning.
I haven't given up! I increased his basal again so we will see what it looks like tomorrow and I will keep you posted.
Wish us luck!!
*** Adding this information for a good question asked . . .
We always pre-bolus at least 10 minutes before breakfast but prefer 15. Nate wakes up saying 'eat, eat, eat'. And we pump with Apidra.
