We are just finishing week one of have Sofie's basal insulin at around 40u per day and her boluses filling in the rest for about 65 to 70 units per day. Things are going much more smoothly, thank you very much. Morning spikes have been tamed and she's just completing her first 24 hours completely in range since, well... I can't remember when Our issues are around going low, particularly during and after workouts. While the increase basal insulin is fantastic, we are still having to play around a lot with temp. basals and partial boluses before workouts. Even without a workout, Sofie's basals are around 2 - 2.2 u/h in the morning and then taper off to about 1.5 u/h in the afternoon (is this normal?). Her heavy workouts tend to be with the track team after school, so often the basals will have to be cut down even further, still she has gone low every day after school and almost every evening. The lows have been easily dealt with, but fairly persistent. Also, what we're finding is that she needs almost no insulin at night now. Most nights she's on a basal rate of .8 and sometimes as low as .5 for at least 5 hours (midnight to 5 am) and still wakes up in the magical 5 to 5.5 range (100 or so). Any suggestions for the lows? She's taking them a lot better then she was -- not so afraid of them, but they still make her feel pretty bad and last week she didn't get much sleep because she was pretty low most of the night. Needless to say, I'm not getting much sleep these days either. Does anyone else have this situation of needing so much less insulin at night? Is this normal? Five years into this, I still feel like such a rookie.
