I am soooo mad right now, I'm seeing stars! My daughter (14) is trying to kill herself, I swear. Her BS have been all over the map--high/low, wide swings with no clear enough pattern to figure out where to adjust. We took her off the pump about a year ago after some serious non-compliance issues, (she'd bolus for food without testing) and for a while she did really well, logging her food and insulin, letting us adjust everything. But she hated the supervision, and constantly begged to just let her do it because she'd proven herself. I knew that while she was on vacation this summer in Alaska she'd be getting away with stuff anyway since I couldn't be there, so I loosened my grip a little. When she got back, there were some wild numbers, but I attributed them to the drastic change in physical activity. Then marching band started, and that was another adjustment. I'd ask her her numbers, and she'd tell me. I'd ask to see it every couple of days or so. I noticed that she was particularly proud when she could show me an "in range" number, but I figured that was because I promised her she could get contacts as soon as I'm working again if she could get her A1C below 8.0. She's been complaining about feeling sick for the past few days, and we're all passing around a cold, so I thought little of it. But she skipped band practice again today and I started talking to her about her #'s. She couldn't tell me the formula she was using. "How do you know what to dose if you don't know the formula???" "I just guess." OMG. We have never done this, it has never ever ever ever ever been OK. So I call the doc and get the last formula we have on file, figuring we'll start from there, and that's the whole reason her numbers have been off. I pointed out that her long-acting insulin has probably changed, because it's been about 6 months since we recorded that dosage with the doc. "How much Levimir have you been using?" She burst into tears and admitted she hasn't been using Levimir AT ALL for MONTHS!!!! All this time, lying to me, throwing away good Levimir pens to make it look like she's using it. I'm about to have an aneurysm.
