My 5 year old daughter was just diagnosed a month ago on thanksgiving. She is still in her "honeymoon" period, she only needs .5 unit of levemere and her carb ratio is 100 to 1 currently so managing everything now I know is different than what it will be once her pancreas stops working completely. So I have some questions about what the future is going to be like. I've been following t1d bloggers and reading stories and something that is really starting to scare me is reading about lows, especially at night. Is this a common thing? As parents do you still do nighttime checks every night? How many times do you check blood sugars overnight? Is it the same if your child has a cgm? How much can you rely on the cgm for accurate readings? If I can see on my phone that the cgm is reporting a good number then can I rely on that and let her sleep and not wake her to test? Also, what's everyone's opinion on diabetes dogs? I know they are not necessary to mangage diabetes but if you were able to get one would you? She's just so little, she doesn't always recognize when she is high or low. I have a feeling I will never stop worrying no matter how big she gets but I'm just wondering if these tools will ease my worry a bit. Thanks in advance for all your input and experience!!
