I'm new here and very new at parenting a child with diabetes, so apologies if this has been addressed in another thread, or if I'm going into unnecessary detail. A little background: My 2.5 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at Sicks Kids hospital here in Toronto, Canada about two weeks ago. We caught it before DKA so she's been an outpatient. We meet with her team once a week, keep food logs to show them, and phone in with her blood glucose readings each morning to get her dosing for the day. She weighs about 33 pounds and is currently on 7 units of Levemir in the morning, and roughly 2.5 units of NovoRapid before meals. She started with .5 in the hospital and they've been slowing bringing up her doses. On two occasions, she has had uncontrollable shaking at breakfast after her two shots. It wasn't violent, but it was as if she had fallen in cold water and was shivering hard. It started with disoriented anger (insults; asking for items of food, then knocking them away; telling us to go away, then to cuddle her) screaming and tears. Then she would begin to calm down and eat, and shake. She was alert, speaking to us, and trying to eat her breakfast but needed some help, due to the shaking. The skin around her mouth and under her fingernails took on a bluish tone. She said she was cold, she asked my husband and I to hold her hands. Her heartbeat was quite fast. It passed after about 10 minutes each time. We asked our diabetes nurse and she said we should contact our regular pediatrician, as this didn't seem related to her insulin shots. That doesn't seem right to me--it's happening right after her shots as she begins to eat. Can anyone advise me what might be happening here? Is this just a low from her shots, before her breakfast has gotten into her system? (We're working hard on developing some language and awareness as a family about feeling high/low, but we're not there yet.) Incident #1 - AM blood glucose was 16.6, 2.5 units Levemir and 1 unit NovoRapid. Incident #2 - AM blood glucose was 12.2, 7 units Levemir and 2.5 units NovoRapid. Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!
