So everybody Knows Kat (7) is diabetic. Kaitlyn (12)gets the physical symptoms that Kat should get when Kat is either high or low. Help? lol. In fact if Kaitlyn gets nauseated or vomits, I check Katerinas BS (and its high) and check Kats ketones which are 0.0 and Kaitlyn's which are trace (0.1-0.9). At times when Kat is low (below 70), Kaitlyn is tired, has a headache, is cranky, sluggish. HELLO? I am trying to teach her how to shield. Its not like she isnt aware. So, Kat very rarely has her own symptoms. I think I need to talk to Kaitlyn about, maybe is she harboring some guilt over not having D when her sister does. Katerina needs to also feel this stuff herself so she can predict an oncoming low or feel a high that lingers past an insulin correction so I can give her more (say its not time for a regularly scheduled BS check). Any ideas?
