Haven't been around in a while. Having a really hard time with Ben's blood sugars and his last a1c was 13!!! In the past year we have almost doubled his lantus dose to 60units, and his I:C ratio is 1:4. (apidra) His correction factor was 1:35. So with the increase in insulin I was figuring a new correction factor. 1800 divided by total daily dose. (about 150 units) so new correction factor of 1:12! Am I figuring this correctly? Now to figure out persistently high blood sugars. Some of it is teenage boy who doesn't want to test or dose when out with friends. But the past few days, we have been on top of it, and we are still aren't seeing blood sugars below 200. I am counting most of his carbs and figuring most of his doses. (so i know it is being done correctly) of course increasing the amount of correction he is getting should help. One thing that occurred to me is maybe his lantus is too high and he is having undetected lows and rebound highs. He usually feels his lows so I didn't suspect this and haven't been testing regularly at night.
