I’m just totally puzzled by this…
V’s numbers lately (not real numbers, he’s not even this perfect)
Before eating: 100; 2 hours after eating: 80; 4 hours after eating: 175
Shouldn’t they be more like:
Before eating: 100; 2 hours after: 140; 4 hours after: 100
He used to only get morning lows… Now, bless his heart, he’s added afternoon lows to the picture.
And often the low numbers dip into the 50 - 60 range, and the highs can go above 200.
He’s Type 1 with no pancreas, so he has to take ensymes to digest.
Has anyone else had this rollercoaster?
Any thoughts on how to fix it - other than test constatnly and adjust?
Yes, I know the pump would be lovely, be, let’s assume that’s not an option at the moment.
He takes about 38 units per day - 12 Lantus at night and 8 in the morning; the rest meal boluses. His night time readings are pretty steady.
Thanks for any help
And Happy Thanksgiving to the Canadians!
