Let me preface that I will be calling our endo in the morning, but I thought I'd pose the question here since I'm wide awake, and judging by today's numbers, I will be for quite awhile.
We made quite a few changes in Adam's insulin during the first few weeks, and for this past week, we've ended up on a carb ratio of 1:15 for breakfast and 1:25 the rest of the day, then 4 units of Levemir in the evening. That has worked well for this week - his numbers have been great - no huge highs and no low lows.
Yesterday was the first day we've battled lows. Granted, he had his flag football game in the morning, and it felt like we were chasing his sugars all day long after that to keep them up.
Today, he started out with a blood sugar of 118, had a good breakfast and my husband gave him 4.5 units of Novolog.
And that's the last Novolog we've given him today. I checked him around 10ish and was shocked to see 53 flash back at me, so I gave him some juice and he popped back up.
He's been grazing all day...not really eating much, but I had to keep giving him some snacks to keep that blood sugar up. He didn't eat dinner, but we still gave him his nighttime Levemir. Was that a mistake? Is this that "honeymooning" I keep hearing about?
I just checked him and he was 63 at 10pm. I'm going to check him again in about a half an hour and see if I need to give him some juice or something. I'm nervous.
