"Child have less hypo awareness, mine doesn't feel bad until 40s Awareness gets worse the more low BGs you are used to."

"She didnt really have low symptoms, but then again within the last couple months she's been increasingly hypo unaware. There's a whole other forum! Does the awareness sometimes fade over time like this?"

"Simon, thank you for sharing! My daughters isf is 1:300. It never occurred to me to reverse the number with carbs but that makes total sense. Lots to learn still!"

"Great info, thx guys :) we have a Bayer contour next link meter btw. I know each body is so different but is there a general bg range wherein the counter-responsive hormones kick in to reverse lows?"

"My daughter is 4 years old too, but 3 years of diabetes ;-) I have never seen such a fast "jump", I think the 45 was false (perhaps water diluted the sample?). Otherwise your baby has still very good counter-responsive hormones and took…"

"It's possible. Depending on the insulin on board and the sensitivity to what I am eating. I've had days where I've tested at 50, eaten 5 or 6 skittles and 6oz of juice and re-test 10 minutes later and find I'm at 275 and…"

"Wow, I've never had a low error reading of that magnitude. What sort of meter is this? Unless it's like a "food on board" situation where she'd eaten something that didn't work quite as planned but it was pushing BG up…"

"I've had just the opposite effect with alcohol swabs, producing false lows. Was she symptomatic at the time when she tested 45? Its all a learning experience, but my advice would be ditch the alcohol swabs and just use good old fashion soap and…"

Brian (bsc) replied to MomofMar's discussion 'BG from 45-369 in 12 minutes???'
"An alcohol swab is a poor way of removing residual sugar. Sugar turns out to not dissolve in alcohol, but it does in water. If there was residual sugar on the fingertips, that could easily corrupt the test result. I have taken to washing my finger…"

sebabella replied to MomofMar's discussion 'BG from 45-369 in 12 minutes???'
"I sorry to hear that. My intuition would be that she was not that low to begin with. However, I think you made the right decision because it is better to correct a low and find out that it was not that low then to wait or recheck. I would suggest to…"

BG from 45-369 in 12 minutes???

Hi all,My 4-yr-old's (dx 9 montha ago) bg tested at 45 this afternoon. I treated with a glucose tab (4 g carbs) and 1/5 C orange juice (5 carbs) so 9 carbs total. I rechecked her in 12 minutes and bg was 369. Then double checked with an alcohol swab and got 390! Then did a control test and control solution was 131.Can anyone make sense of this? Is that even possible to go from 45-369 in 12 minutes? I'm questioning if she was even that low to begin with but don't know how it would have come up…See More

Gerri replied to MomofMar's discussion 'Fever and ketones'

"Is she on a pump? If so, there is a setting that allows you to temporarily increase her basal rate to help clear out those ketones. Try increasing her basal insulin by, oh, 10%, and see if that doesn't help. I would do it during the day so…"
