Ellie my five yr old, now almost 6 in june has been t1d for 2yrs in august. She gets 1unit of humalog for 30 grams, and 3.25 lantus at 8am. Well i'm waiting for a heart transplant (dad) so I sleep a lot and at weird times. So this results in Ellie and staying up until 2- 3 am every night, and then we sleep until 1-2pm.
This is where the trouble starts. If Ellie is around 200 blood glu. everything is fine. If she is at 250 everything is fine, she will drop alittle down to about 220- 200. BUT, if she is at 150 she will drop until, well I always try to stop it around 100, but even tonight she was at 52. It happens without fail. So to recap.
if she is at 150 she drops dangerously.
if she is at 200 she is fine.
if she is over 270-300 she will slowly climb above 350-400.
Well this has started happening between our endo appts and the last appt was with the pa and she wasn't very good at her job, every time I asked about this she would quickly change the subject.
Have any of you parents or t1d's ever gone through this. I've tried everything, fatty foods, high carb foods, no food, less humalog, more humalog, less lantus,more lantus, you get the picture. I'm scared to sleep at night and my failing heart could use a break and most importantly my daughter needs a break and to be safe at bed time. PLEASE HELP!!
