We attempted a basal check today. DS woke up with a BG of 85 and he ate only turkey and cheese for breakfast. (I had to bribe him with a dinner of bagels, rice milk and candy though--yum! ) School nurse watched his Dexcom and it never got higher than 102. That's a pretty good basal rate, right? I'm thinking that is a pretty decent and accurate rate for that small period of time. However, 102 is too low for DS to go out onto the playground. He plays hard and will drop. So essentially the basal check ended at 10:30 when he was tested prior to recess. The health aide gave him 15 free carbs (our standard) and he went on his way. Is there any way to test basals on a child at school? It just seems like it is too hard when dealing with things like recess and PE? Maybe I'll have to wait for the weekend to test his basal from approx. 10:30 to 2:30?? Thanks!
