"There are SO many reasons why it could be high. Maybe you didn't give the amount of insulin you thouht you did. Maybe you didn't count carbs correctly. Maybe she was stressed today. Maybe she is getting sick (I hope not). Maybe it's…"

"Maybe she didn't wash her hands? Sugar/food on fingers can alter the results. But if the cgms concurs then that is unlikely. I often rewash hands and retest with unexplained highs before I correct. If she was on a pump it's likely an issue…"

"Agree with the previous comments. My son was 9 at diagnosis. Sometimes it just goes high for no good reason. If he gets sick or is unusually stressed it can go up. Also he went up when his ped gave him a steroid nasal spray for his allergies, even…"

Help! Huge sugar spike for no reason!

My daughter was diagnosed in November but we have not seen numbers even in the 200s since then except for maybe 2 or 3 times. She runs around 100. At dinner she was 315!!! She swears she did not eSt anything unaccounted for, there was no exercise today... It is slowly coming own but not by much. I figure we will see where it is overnight (I won't test her probably- she has a cgm so I can look at that)... If it is still really high in the am we will call the doc but any ideas why it is so high?…See More
