Some horrendous parental miscommunication lead to the 7yo getting a double dose of Basaglar last night, one at 8pm and the other at 11pm.
I realised it almost immediately. I had some data from forgetting a long acting dose a few months back, and figured he’d need about 80g over the course of the night. Lined up the jubes, double checked the published profile of Basaglar, and settled in for the long haul. Went in every 1.5 - 2h to test and get a sleeping boy to eat 1 - 3 sweets; luckily 7yo’s can literally do that in their sleep. Crawled in to bed at 6.30am, mumbling something about a reduced breakfast dose to my husband.
It’s my first time babysitting a long-acting OD, and that was the best plan I could come up with intuitively.
He’s fine, we’re all fine. What would you have done? Is there a proper/published way to do these things? Mostly I’m just sitting here wishing CGMs were more accessible in my country.
