Has anyone else had this happen? Here is the scenario, my son just turned 5 in October and he was diagnosed in March 2010. He gets 4 units of Lantus at bedtime. Starting last Friday we had 2 mornings above 200 (261, 210) then 2 below (153, 132) and then 2 above again (237, 244) so the decision was made to increase his lantus to 5 units last night. This morning he was 348. What is up with that? Anyone else have this happen where the BS was higher after an increase like that? The rest of the day his BS is between 75 and about 150. He is not sick and has been eating Normal.
Since it is cooler out and we are not outside as much his Breakfast and Lunch Humalog was increased to 1 for 30 and his dinner is still at 1 for 40. We eat a late dinner (around 7pm) so we do not do a bedtime snack.
The only other change is that in mid October we started using the pen needle to give the lantus instead of the syringes. As a coincidence after we switched we had to increase from 3 units to 4. We still use syringes for Humalog and are not opposed to going back to the syringes if that would help even things out with the Lantus.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
