Ashleigh likes oatmeal, but due to bolusing problems she doesn't eat it a lot. What normally happens is she eats breakfast at 7:00AM. between 8:30-9:00AM she spikes close to 300. Then without fail around 10AM she drops below 70. She's gone as low as 35 after oatmeal. We are using the same ratio (1:7) that has worked for every other breakfast meal, but it does not seem to work for oatmeal. Here are suggestions other parents of type 1s have given me and the results. Suggestion #1 Prebolus. This works well for the spike. We have tried different prebolus times. Everywhere from 10min-40min ahead of time. It pretty much eliminates the spike but she still drops low 3 hours later. Suggestion #2 give less insulin (change I:C ratio): we did try a 1:8 and she still dropped low, so perhaps even less than 1:8 the difference would be 10 units vs 8.5 units Suggestion #3 subtract fiber. We were taught to only subtract 1/2 fiber if there is 5g or more per serving. This oatmeal has 3g per serving suggestion #4 have protein with it. She does drink a glass of milk every morning with breakfast. So that includes 9g protein. but perhaps more is needed. Today she had oatmeal. We subtracted the fiber and added in 3 sausage links. Which gave her a total of 20g protein (9 with her milk + 11 with sausage). Hoping it works out, but she had to correct a high, so i'm afraid that's going to be our downfall. Any other suggestions on what to try? It's mainly the low that's driving us crazy.
