At camp this year, they were doing a study with mini-doses of Glucagon for BG lower than 60. I never tried it because I thought it was overkill, but then they had a lecture with the results from kid's camp. Apparently using it brings low BG up nicely without the rebound highs that typically happen when kids require a lot of carbs for a low. So yesterday we were at a music festival all day and ate tons of different foods we're not used to. So we had to guess on a lot of carbs. Everything was fine till we got home and Emily fell asleep. Her sensor began to alarm at midnight and she was in a vertical nosedive from 120 to 60. I checked her BG and it was 54. She had 4 units IOB over 4 hours, plus a combo/dual-wave going. Ugh. She was also sound asleep and I know her stomach was full from sampling all the foods we ate. I knew we'd need a lot of carbs to stop the drop from previous experience. So instead I got out the Glucagon and injected 10 units. I sat back and watched the Navigator drop 2-3 points each minute and felt a little panicky. But I decided to gut it out for 10 minutes before giving any carbs. At the 7 minute point, the straight-down arrow switched to an angled arrow down. At the 9 minute point, the arrow straightened out and her BG was up to 61 from 46. At the 15 minute point, her BG was 87 and steady arrow! I waited another 15 minutes, no change. 87 and steady arrow (Fingerstick 91)! I gave her 2 tabs at that point and went to bed. She did go up to 195 about 3 hours later, but I think it was from funnel cakes and other junk. Even if it was from the Glucagon, that is MUCH better than the 300 rebound we'd be fighting otherwise! Here's the kicker: This morning I went to toss the Glucagon package. I had grabbed the wrong one! What I gave her expired in SEPTEMBER 2007!!! I had it set aside to practice with but grabbed it in the dark. We've been told repeatedly at camp to try the expired Glucagons for mini-doses (NOT for emergency use) because in their experience it still works. Well--I guess they were right!
