We are on our own this weekend. No calls to our case worker are needed. Riley is on a fixed carb plan for now nph/novolog. She gets the nph twice daily and the log only before dinner. We adjust her insulin based off her numbers I guess and possible activity. Anyhow last night for dinner her numbers were actually in a normal range not something that we normally see at dinner time.She has been on 11 nph and 4 log. We dropped both last night by one unit. My husband thought we were wrong to drop the nph. I was sure we should her 2 a.m. check the night before she was in the 130's and by breakfast high 70's. I didnt want her as low at 2 a.m. so she wouldnt drop as low before breakfast. at 2 last night she was still in the 130's so yay for me calling it right.
As for the patterns she seems to run really high during the week at school 200-300's and normal to low here on weekends for us. I know her insulin needs to be adjusted for each but I am not sure by how much its safe to drop at once. I am not really asking just stating I am not sure. We call our case worker tonight to check in and we will ask then.
Her numbers were so great I am wondering if she might be honeymooning or if its just the pattern of good numbers on weekends because she is way more active here than at school.
More just sharing this time that any questions. It feels good I am getting whatever wacky plan our case worker has us on. Which will be changing as soon as we get a endo.
