Just to start off, I have emailed/called my son's doctor about this but wondering if there's any other parents out there who have had the same issue.
My son is 22 months old, diagnosed at 20 months so this is still kinda new to us. They had put his ratio for every 65 carbs, he'd get 1 unit. At first this worked, now his BG numbers are staying in the 250-300's consistantly. My husband and I find ourselves giving him 2 units at almost every meal. At his last appointment, his doctor mentioned changing his breakfast ratio down to 60 and keeping his carb intake between 40-60; making it just below 1 unit per meal. That'd be great if his BG number wasn't giving him an extra unit! Even his "middle-of-the-night" check is in the high 300's to low 400's.
I left his doctor a message as well as emailed him my son's BG numbers for the past 2 weeks, but has anyone had this issue made just made the choice to lower his ratio? I have gone ahead and changed it to the 60 carbs for each unit but we're still not seeing much of a difference. The only other "option" we have at the moment, without hearing from his doctor, is to change his Lantus at night. He gets 3 units right now and we could up it to 4 but, and like I mentioned, we're still somewhat new, it scares me that this would put him low at night.
Alright, thanks for any advice or just thoughts!!!
