At the beginning of this month we reached our darling daughter's 2 year mark with Diabetes. She's almost 3.5 years old. She has been on Novorapid & Levemir since the beginning. Look, it's insulin so I'm not looking for the shiniest new thing but lately she is really high in the morning. Barely any hypos which is AWESOME but her numbers have been really high. Seems like there isn't any insulin reserve.
We saw her Endo today. We are upping her Levemir to 5 units at night. If we don't see any immediate improvements our next plans of action are as follows:
A) Giving her 5 units of Levemir right at bedtime (1.5 hours after dinner and her Novorapid injection)
B) Splitting the Levemir injections to twice a day.
C) Switching to another long-acting insulin.
So, my question(s). Anyone experience this? What did you do? Did you switch? Happy with the switch??
**Aside from some long-actings not really for children under 2, there was a reason I chose Levemir. I can't remember now since I was shocked beyond belief......20 weeks pregnant with baby #3...did I say in utter shock??!!
