The past couple days since off insulin have been BEAUTIFUL! Today's blood sugar levels:
9:15 Breakfast - 84
11:40 Before Gym Class - 90
1:15 Lunch - 67
THEN IT HAPPENED........ 3:20 and Andrew's hungry so he tests
After the panic struck, I strategically collected myself and calmly said, "Well, I guess you'll have to wait a little longer for a snack." Meanwhile, I have a thousand questions flying through my head. What the heck happened?
As the day progressed, he retested at 4:30 - 143 and then again at dinner 6:00 - 80. Houston, we have landed!
Comfortable back in numbers that are normal, I finally figured out what I did wrong......He had 1 extra carb at lunch today. I have had him on a strict diet of only 2 starch carbs per meal and 1 starch carb per snack. As long as I do not go over the 2 starch carb load, he is able to keep at normal blood glucose levels.
One's things for sure, Andrew's pancreas is FIGHTING ALL THE WAY TO THE END!
