My daughter's numbers have been really hard to control the past week. It is really frustrating and depressing when you try so hard and the effort doesn't reward you. Last night she was having a low at 62. SHe wanted some cereal with milk so we just used that to treat the low. 28 carbs. In 15 minutes she was at 95 and still hungry so I made another 28 carb serving and gave her insulin for it. She was at 250 an hour later.
I have noticed the Ping doesn't want to give more insulin if she wants to eat more than what she was dosed for the first time. If she eats and then wants another 25 carbs then when I use the EZcarb function it recommends no insulin because she has insulin on board I guess. Maybe I should just dose her with the normal insulin to carb ration when this happens and ignore the pump recommendations.
The other thing that has me down is that I see there is a new drug study for newly diagnosed people. I sure wish we could have participated in a study like this a few months ago but now she is beyond the 3 month limit. I looked for studies for her then and couldn't find anything.
