I was even debating on whether to tell this or not; but I just need to get it off my chest. For the past three months I thought Jacob's numbers were great. It seemed like every time he checked he was pretty much in range. He checks before every meal and every snack--he is thirteen and eats a lot and frequently, so I thought he was checking frequently too. I thought we had an accurate picture of what he was doing. His averages were 123-breakfast; 126-lunch; 194-supper; 134-midnight. He does about 6 fingersticks a day. We went to the endo last Friday and the A1c was 10.0 , this is up from 7.9 in July. Needless to say we were shocked. Obviously we aren't checking enough. The thing that rubbed salt in the wound was the fact that our endo office hired a pharmacist to help our NP, and she was running the show. As soon as the A1c came back, her tone with us immediately changed from nice and helpful to condescending and basically it is all my fault I am doing this to my son. Then she goes on and on about the fact that he lost a kilo and that should have been my warning that something was wrong. First off I am not sure what a kilo is, I don't know the metric system that well; later found out it is about 2.2 lbs. This kid is 5'2" weighs 100 lbs and I am supposed to notice that he lost 2 whole pounds??? But because I didn't notice, she made me feel like the worst mother ever. So that is my sad little tale. Now we are checking about every two hours to see if we can find out what went wrong. I hate D.
