If you’ve read my previous discussion, you would see that my son has been dealing with lows at night. Well last night, I did not correctly calculate his carb intake. I gave him too much insulin at dinner. Before bed, he was low. I did the 15 carb - 15 minute rule. He went to bed within normal range.
Being my son is a newly diagnosed diabetic, I am still doing 2 am checks every night. Plus, Im anal.
At 2am, his bg was a whopping 401!!! (I totally failed.) I thought I should give him a correction, BUT he always wakes up in the morning low.
As I type this, the little guy is still snoozing. So, I do not know what his morning bg is yet.
I on the other hand, have tossed and turned all night wondering what I should or shouldn’t have done.
I know 401 is a VERY high bg. Should that be corrected no matter what??? Is leaving him to sleep high bad???
I hate that diabetes is not just a ‘black and white’ disease. There is way too much gray area for me. =P
