My son was diagonised on Oct 7th on this year, and is only 22 months old. The last two months brought us a cold and the stomach bug. The stomach bug landed us in the ER, and we soon found out that after the stomach bug your body does not absorb carbs and it can last for weeks. Even the docs did know that and were dosing my son way to high.
Before the stomach bug we had decent control 120-180 with a average BG of 150 per day. After the stomach bug it has been a little over a week, it has been a nightmare. We cant get him down at all anymore. We are slowly working back to our old I:C ratios (not there yet), but I really think his basal is off.
Before starting the pump he took 1.5u of Levemir in the AM and .5-.75u of levemir at night. We have increased the basal on the pump over the last few days since we cant bring him down to:
8am- 8pm - .09u per hour
9pm-7am - .035 per hour
He seems to drop a lot over night. Last night he was 201 at 11pm, and at 4am he was 115. This drop has always been like this even without the pump.
My question is, if he was on 1.5 + .5u of levemir any suggestions on basal setting. It is hard to get a > 2yr old to not eat. Just seems like nothing is working anymore. We have also noticed that the site on the upper butt seems to be slow to lower BG compared to injections in lower back and arms.
Could his too colds that he got back to back effected his honeymoon phase?
