I need to figure out if my DD's carb ratio for the morning is off or if she just really needs a good amount of protein with breakfast.
She was 160 when she woke up this morning, a bit higher than I'd like, but this was her birthday weekend with grandparents in town and you know what excitement does to BS.
I gave her 1.5 units (we are MDI still) for a 35 carb breakfast, cherrios and milk. Her CR is 1:25 for breakfast, correction factor is 1:200. Usually I give her scrambled eggs or something with her cereal for the protein, but this morning she wanted a hard boiled egg, something I didn't have any of, so she just got her cereal.
I checked an hour later and her BS was 344. She also got her Levemir at the same time as her Novolog for breakfast. We do Levemir morning (1.5u) and evening (1.0).
What should we see 45 min- 1 hour post meal in terms of BS? I have read that it should only be 40-50 pts higher than the pre-meal reading.
Molly is on her way out of her honeymoon so everything is getting a bit scrambled and I am having trouble making heads or tails of what needs to be fixed.
