HELP!!! We're being bombarded with.........
Now, before you get all excited about that, let me explain!!
Recently J.J. has been going low.....A LOT!!! We hit our first number in the 30's this past week. Plus we also had our first time ever waking up low.
By the way......you would think a blood sugar level of 31 would make a kid comatose or something......but quite the contrary. He was running around......pushing his trucks outside!! He had no clue!!! I was checking him because I had a hunch he might be going low. He really hates it when he's low from running around and has to stop what he's doing to rest so we can get sugar in him. Can't blame him!!
So anyway......why the good numbers yesterday???
I FORGOT LANTUS!!!!
It was right around dinner time and I was telling hubby of the great numbers when I realized my mistake. We know Wed. nights are really active sports nights for us, so we decided to skip the dose and keep an eye on him during the night. (It was this same night the week before that we got the overnight low.) No problems so far!!! But he's not up yet to get the final number!!
So now I'm wondering if we should "forget" it again?? I had posed the question several months back about going to a "NO LANTUS" scenario, but the CDE said it's rare, and she wouldn't want it to be done for a long period. The endo suggested the opposite.....go high on Lantus, and decrease the meal boluses. But man.......after yesterday.........no lantus looks good.
Maybe we'll take it day by day!!! Lantus or no Lantus we want more days like yesterday!!:-)
