at what number do you correct a high BG at school? I've gone a few rounds with our nurse over this.
Bobby's desired range is 80-120, he corrects anything over 150 if no IOB.
Anything over 160 gets entered into the pump. It may not recommend a dose (if IOB) but it's entered to check.
Anything over 10 (180) will be corrected if the pump will allow it (IOB) :cwds:
Anything over 130.
Ashleigh's Target range in her pump is set at 90-150. So she's supposed to correct anything over 150. When we did MDI we waited to correct until she was 200.
Thanks. She doesnt want to correct until he hit 300. I'm not ok with that.
DD's daytime target is 100. She is generally checked at school before lunch, so any number over 100 gets corrected at lunch, unless there is a reason not too (e.g., classroom treat before lunch, in which case we might not correct or might reduce the correction).
She seems to feel her lows, is driven to school, and has PE right after lunch, so is otherwise checked only when she is symptomatic. If she is above target at that time, whether or not she gets a correction would depend on the number. We would not likely correct a post-lunch number with active insulin (which is all of the school afternoon) -- but might if we had a pod error or some other issue.
I don't think you should have to go "round and round" about anything with the school nurse.
She doesn't ever get to decide about your child's dose.
This, exactly. WTF?!
We correct anything over 100.
Corrections at 200...Daniel will drop if he is corrected under....But he is honeymooning and very sensitive still....We are currently making the change official since nurse has instructions to correct at 151....but I am the one going in right now, so until I get it in writing, I will correct only if above 200.
I would let the year know that she does not have a say in it at all!
Whatever her crazy thinking, it's not her call. If she's hassling you about it, show her the endo's Health Plan (and/or your 504 if you have one) and then contact her boss if she doesn't shut up and comply.
You shouldn't even have to have that conversation with her, ugh.
Why is she calling the shots on the management plan? She needs to follow whatever order she is given, not her own idea of how to manage diabetes. My son gets a correction for anything over 95 -- which is his target. He doesn't test very often to know to correct, but that is his pump setting.
What does the doctors order say? The nurse not be making decisions on her own...she should be following the doctors orders.
We correct at 150.
The nurse has no say in when to correct!
Connor's range is 80-110 so anything over 110 is corrected.
She doesn't want to correct until he hits 300?! WTF, she doesn't get to decide. She follows dr's orders or she gets reported.
