Hi everyone, just joined the forum.
We are 2 weeks into this new world with my 5 year old daughter and of course we are freaking out.
In a nut shell, we got sent home from the hospital where they told us to give 4 doses of Lantus at night and .5 dose of humalog per 15g of carbs.
We can’t get the numbers into the 100-200 range, its all over but thankfully no lows. She wakes up in the 200-250 and has 30grams of carbs, according to our doctors we would have to give .5 in order to correct her being 250 before breakfast and another 1 for her carbs for a total of 1.5 before she goes to school.
I am guessing she is nervous to be back in school with Diabetes in the back of her mind, but her numbers have skyrocketed to 420 in less than an hour and then comes down over the course of the day. We are scared confused and our next dr. appointment is still a week away…
any insight or suggestions will be gladly appreciated, this is completely new to us and we haven’t slept in weeks.
