    My 12 year old boy has recently started to have high blood sugars about three hours after lunch and dinner....he has a cgm so I notice that around two hours after eating his levels return to normal and then they start to rise again. Has anyone else experienced this?

    It sounds like puberty hormones may be starting to kick in and that he needs more basal insulin if he climbs later after mealtime insulin. It is typical for teens to need more insulin in basal than in bolus. If he's returning to target after a meal and then climbing, you may need to adjust his I:C ratio if you increase basal. Do you do your own adjustments or does your endo make them?
