you could of also passed out from kneeling at the side of her bed in middle of the night the up down up down stuff can cause orthostatic hypotention, hence why i used to pass out in church! hydration and getting older (lol) has helped me with this but i still can get woozy when kneeling. in anycase you did the right thing getting treatment, i have had a lot of interactions with older type 1's on here lately thinking back about their youth and treatment with 1-2 shot minimal testing/ of course this was all that was offered back then so no blame/ i just feel like they tend to label us younger moms and neurotic about our kids care. i try so hard not to be, but there are days that are harder than others as we all know! even us as kids grew up totally different than kids today. i try to let them make their own decisions, let jacob self manage ( with me checking his pdm and helping when he needs it) but lets face it there at days fraught with worry and concern!
natalie, sorry you have such a bad night, thankfully i have never been put in that harrowing a situation. i tend to give jacob a snack with protein and fat at night to help him stay steady esp on his more active days, then i do less insulin than his pdm recommends. his favorite lately is chocolate hazelnut spread on an english muffin or icecream we do 60/40 (1 hour) for both of those snacks and he does well with this. hoping for better days for you! amy
