It doesn't happen often but, with more independence does come 'forgetting to bolus' - even after I asked, "did you bolus for that?" so.... about 1.5 hours later and checking reveals 415 bg. I have him bolus for the item that he previously ate, pre-bolus for 80 carbs that he was going to eat and, from experience, (this is a rare experience) I felt that this situation brings on a stubborn high that the traditional bolus will not cure. So, I had him do an extra bolus for the high that we would have to counter. At bedtime he was at 201 so I corrected it and did so more strongly since he had previously corrected (40 or so minutes before) and yet his number was still high. That, apparently didn't even do the trick because at 6:00a.m. this morning he was at 180 which is a real rarity. The question is, when your child forgets to bolus and you find yourself in a similar situation, do you find that you need a much stronger bolus (so a different i/c ratio or a strong correction, whichever way you want to think about it) simply because this occurrence? What do you do about it? I still feel as though I handled it partially wrong because of the wake up number and the cgm sensor went bad yesterday so there was no cgm (which is also rare).
