    Hi all,

    Hoping you can shed some light on a perplexing situation. Hank's numbers have been pretty decent up until the last few days, and now they've gotten all wonky. In talking with the CDE, she thinks he is getting 'extra food' either from his babysitter or a friend at the babysitter's. Would you agree, based on these numbers? If yes, how do we reinforce the importance of this without seeming punitife? If no, what other culprits could be at play? The only other thing the CDE really suggested was a possibility of a growth spurt coming on, thus the high numbers in the middle of the night.

    His regimen is 2.5 units of Lantus in the a.m., Novolog at meals: 1:30 for breakfast, 0.5:40 for lunch, and 1:45 for dinner. Typical snacks are 15 grams, unless high.

    Open to any and all suggestions!

    Your CDE may be correct but you also should consider that part of it may be a basal issue, meaning he needs more Lantus overnight. I say this mainly because he is so high in the midnight to early morning hours.
