So we’re doing a “sensor study” with my 3 1/2 year old Type 1 Sweetie and there are some discrepancies between it and her meter throughout the day, which I expected. Bed time rolls around and I test her with her meter and calibrate the sensor before I put her to bed. I go about my evening and decide to check her sensor before I get ready for bed. She’s at 135 and dropping normally. Some concern because, if she continues to drop, I’ll need to wake her up and give her a snack. I’m prepared to set an alarm and check her in an hour or so. I check after I get ready for bed and she’s 75 and falling fast. Go downstairs, quickly fix a snack and get ready to wake her up. Get back up there and she’s 57! Then she’s 43 not a minute later. I RUN downstairs and get juice, wake her up out of a sound sleep (NOT easy to do) and get her to drink her juice. Grab her meter while she’s drinking, test her, she’s 117. WHAT!!! The juice is fast acting but she had drank MAYBE 2 oz within the minute it took me to sprint downstairs, set up her meter and test her (yes, I WAS moving that fast)…that wouldn’t increase her that much that fast, would it? 70 point difference? Is this normal? Not to mention the COMPLETE HEART ATTACK I HAD that she was 43 and falling fast according to her sensor.
Then another thought I had was, how many times does this really happen when I am not aware of it?
Ah, crap, they just need to find a cure like, YESTERDAY!
