      Yes, it's always something. And prebolusing. . . . I thank God we know about it, but. . . .when we dipped into honeymoon again a few weeks ago we had a few days where we gave very little bolus insulin. Wow, what a way to live, not strictly counting carbs, and if she didn't eat something she just didn't eat it! No chasing, pretending, substituting, nothing. It was heaven. . .. .
      Glad your numbers have evened out.

      I see you've been doing this far longer than I have, but just wanted to put in my info, we had gotten into the habit of prebolusing and then went through a honeymoon so got more cautious. When we got back to the old system, we were feeding her and then giving her a shot, and she had a period there were when she had a high carb and fast carb meal she shot up to near 450. I still don't know if it was a rebound, my first suspicion since we'd been going low, but I do think that when they get fast carbs before the shot those things just race into the blood and flood the system and it takes a while to get them cleared up. We are back to prebolusing now but if we run into this in the future I intend to give her something good and fatty first to slow that stuff down!

      Good luck, poor kid, feeling crummy like that, must have been hard! There's no good answers to some of this, is there?
