So we've been happily crusing along for awhile now:
- 5-7 lantus at night (depending the next days anticipated activity level)
- 1 to 30 for breakfast
- 1 to 25 for lunch
- 1 to 15 for dinner
All of a sudden, it seems like things are changing, but not in the way I'd expect. It always seems like she was lowest between breakfast and lunch, but now all of a sudden she's breaking 200 at lunch! Maybe part of the problem is that she's been responsible for making her own breakfast - and she chooses carbs. She's been eating 2 waffles (28 grams) for the last few days. She's been consistently waking up between 110-140, so she's not "high" to begin with.
Day 1 - I had her take two units (because waffles/bread always make her go a little high), and she's 206 at lunch.
Day 2 - We increase the 3 units for the waffles, and she's still 188 at lunch.
Day 3 (today) - She takes 4 units for the waffles, and she's perfect at lunch - 106. But that's like a 1 to 7 carb ratio!
What makes this so weird is that it seems like I don't need to adjust the lunch or dinner ratio. If anything, her lunch/dinner ratio might need to be higher, because she went down to around 60 yesterday between lunch and dinner, and then was 85 near bedtime - usually the time that she's at her highest point of the day.
Oy. I'm freaking out a little because she starts school next week and I need to decide on a ratio for lunch, but it seems like she's in total flux right now, so I don't have any idea where she'll be next week. I've started journaling all her food/bg/insulin again, partially because I am trying to figure out her trend, and partially because I am seriously hoping to get her a pump...soon!
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
