My 3 1/2 year old just did a “sensor study” and we got some good info from it. But some of the changes the nurse made have me awake in the middle of the night scratching my head and waiting to see if the second round of fast-acting carb will bring my daughter back over 100 so I can go back to sleep.
When she was first diagnosed, her Lantus was given at night and she was going low. They took her off Lantus for a while since she was honeymooning and did fine without it. When we got rid of NPH for her, they brought Lantus back but in the morning because of the experience of going low at night with it in the evening. Well, this latest change has us giving Lantus in the evening again and, this morning she woke up low. Tonight at 10:00 she was 87. Woke her up and gave her some milk to get her up over 100 so I could sleep. Tested again at 11:30 and she was 89. Woke her up and gave her 1/2 cup juice and now I’m waiting to test to see if she’s come up enough. Could this be the Lantus in the evening causing this? She did have a correction at bed time because she was over 200 but that was at 7:45. Wouldn’t the majority of that be gone by now? And she didn’t have a correction last night before bed and she woke up low.
I was also reading about Lantus being faster-acting if you accidentally inject in the muscle…maybe I screwed up the injection? I don’t know. Any wisdom out there?
