My daughter was admitted to the hospital after an ER visit last weekend. She vomited 10 times before the Zofran kicked in and spent the next 12 hours on IV fluids and glucose. It was clearly a huge stress on her body. They released us Sunday afternoon, and later that night she seemed to be back in good spirits. Her appetite has been *very* slow to return, though. In addition, when she does eat, any amount of insulin coverage will send her plummeting. Today we gave 4u Levemir (80% of her usual) and 50% of her Humalog. Each time we did the latter, we caught an impending low an hour later. Long story short, we talked to an Endo today and mentioned this. I assumed she would say, "Oh, that's the normal reaction after a GI episode". Instead, she ordered an AM Cortisol Test. Presumably for Addison's? I was too confused to ask the right questions. So, I have two main questions (in addition to the other million little ones): -- How long does it take your CWD for carb absorption to return to normal after a GI episode? -- Is there any relation to the vomiting and onset of Cortisol issues/Adrenal Insuff/Addison's? Meaning, would this be coincidence, or could the onset have caused the vomiting? -- What goes on in the AM Cortisol test? (How many bribes do I need in my bag? Praying this is just over-precaution!
