Looking at some dog diabetes stuff, so this might not apply , but I saw something interesting. A doc wrote that when there is insufficient insulin production, the liver doesn't get the message to stop pumping out glucose. I read that as basal sugar will increase with too little insulin. Does it make sense that our kids might do that? So if I am already giving too little basal insulin, or there's a pump or site problem, a shot that is missed, etc., I know the glucose from a meal and the basal glucose will raise her blood sugar because there isn't enough insulin to match it. But will her blood sugar be raised even more in some cases because her body thinks she's not getting enough glucose so the liver pumps more out? So if I have a scr#w up and she's short insulin for a bit, will she then have higher basal needs for a few hours or even more after that? Not that I overthink or anything. . . .
