I'm sick of these late-night highs. They are driving me insane!!
Matthew will have good numbers all day and then-bam! During the 9 o'clock hour-----without fail---that child will spike with no carbs. I hate giving him shots while he's sleeping!!
Of course, this didn't happen the week of camp because we were chasing lows, but now he's back into the same pattern again. At least he's consistent. Sigh.
I'm going to lower his dinner ratio....one. more. time. Make sure he doesn't go low 2 hours after, and then call the nurse tomorrow. Again.
I'm really stumped.
We give lantus at 8pm. The Lantus does last until dinner, but doesn't seem to be kicking in quick enough to hit that 9 o'clock hour.
When we moved lantus up to 6pm......he started to go high before dinner and he STILL had that spike in the 9 o'clock hour. So.....we went back to 8pm.
Could it be growth hormones at that hour? It's so darn consistent that I think it's got to be his body doing something.
Maybe I should talk to the nurse about splitting the Lantus into 2 shots? I've heard that splitting the dose gives some people better coverage......
Reward to the one who figures this out!
Thank you for letting me vent. : )
