Hello, my son is 13 and probably inching into puberty and his appetite has increased and his blood sugars seem to be rising in the am. We just had a disheartening visit with a new endo (his other left the practice) i asked about the approach to the problem and she basically didn't answer, i am looking for a new doc for him because apathetic medical care is unacceptable to me, but anyway. my question is with increased growth and appetite have basals increased significantly for your children, his carb ratios seem ok because it is the overnight that seem to be rising, he hates it when i check him at night so i need to adjust slowly but i wanted to post his settings and get some feed back if anyone wants to share, any info would be greatly appreciated!
3a-7a .95( increased 4 nights ago from .90, endo suggested this)
9-11 .45 ( lowered for gym but seems to be working on non gym days)
his total daily insulin is 40-50 avg. bolus/basal is 65/35 ( a refection of corrections but also for more eating!)
i did check his bs last night at 230 am because he got up to go to the bathroom a good sign that he is high and he was 250 he went to bed at 200 with a good size bolus for his snack, ( dad gave him a burger and fries for dinner which does not help me with figuring things out!) i gave him a small bolus so i'll see in a bit what he is this morning, i think his 8p-3a needs to come up a bit, like i said any thoughts would be great! thanks! amy
