For the past three days, my son's numbers have been on the low side. It started out with his morning numbers going from around 150 at bedtime to around 75 before breakfast. While 75 isn't necessarily a bad number, it was a little low for comfort so I went ahead and reduced his basal by 1u which seems to have fixed the problem. Unfortunately, his pre-meal numbers have also been extremely low (40-55). I really managed to nail down his I:C ratios and they've been working really well for the last three weeks or so, but then we saw this drastic drop in insulin needs, so I went ahead and called my endo team. The nurse I spoke to told me to keep my son on his normal I:C ratios for at least a week so we could gather numbers and have a better view on what's going on, and that if we needed to, we could just give him a snack to keep him from going too low...say what??? I understand the need to spot patterns and such, but I was REALLY uncomfortable with keeping those lows going for an entire week just to gather information-especially since we're still in the process of getting the G4. I decided to go against the nurse's advice and start making changes to his I:C ratios to stop the hypo episodes he's been having. Breakfast has gone from 1:22 to 1:30, lunch is still at 1:25, and dinner went from being 1:25 to 1:35. If he had been experiencing mild highs, then I'd feel a little better about waiting to see what his numbers would do. The lows aren't good though, and some of them showed up after only three hours post meal. I thought she was off, but was the nurse right? Should I have waited a few more days?
