"I have the opposite problem of going low during skiing, so I usually have to decrease my basal or make sure I have snacks with me. Exercise always makes me go low, though. I don't really have any other tips other than making sure to keep your…"

"It has been a few years since I went skiing. What worked for me was to keep my basals the same and eat a high fat/protein breakfast and reduce the bolus a small amount. I think a combination of the altitude (I require less insulin), exercise and…"

downhill skiing

Anybody have advice for downhill skiing and bolusing?I seem to go high during downhill skiing, then low the night after. I think I've figured out what to do...increase basal rates during skiing, decrease at bedtime...wondering if anyone else is an active skier that can share their pump tips.See More

sweetmom replied to Spock's discussion 'Opinions, please on overnight basals'
"This was the post I was looking for today. I have the same problems. A small tick in basal change makes more of a change than I think. And I agree that you need to wait 2 days at least to make sure the change is stable. Often I get too excited and…"

"Sorry for the late reply - but yes I'm hoping that in 10 years my son will have much more predictable rates. Not only because he won't be growing anymore but because his schedule will be more consistent as an adult (potentially.) With…"

"Thank you everyone. Seems that this is normal. Having to change all the time makes me feel like I don't know what I'm doing, because once we realize we need to change a dose (that BG craziness is not just a 'fluke' event) a few…"

"My son has had T1D for 10 years, starting at 20 months. Up until the last 6 months or so we made changes quite frequently. He is now nearly 12 (in two weeks) and I have noticed in the last 6 months we have not changed a lot. Strange because he is…"

"Celeste you so right. I find that we tweak dosages every 2-3 weeks. Sweetmom your adjustments are really better than normal. I am also experiencing changes of BG levels as the seasons change. So I am glad that others do too. Its frustrating but keep…"

"My daughter is 6 also - she has had diabetes since 2 years old. I probably make slight adjustments every 2-3 weeks - but we have major overhauls every few months (where it seems like we are changing all the basal rates first up up up then down down…"

"Well that makes me feel more "normal". I hate the changes. When she hits adulthood, aside from periods and such, should her rates/ratios steady off you think?"

Natasha Bowlds replied to sweetmom's discussion 'how often do you change your basal rates/ I:C ratios on your child?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I would say that we change something every couple of weeks. I think it's getting more frequent now as my son is 12 and about to hit puberty, but still - I can't imagine going a whole three months with the same settings. So yes, I would say…"

how often do you change your basal rates/ I:C ratios on your child?

We've been at this diabetes things for over 2 years. My diabetic daughter is 6, and I thought I was really on top of all this diabetes stuff....but every three months for the past three years we have to adjust something with her insulin. I get it straighted out, bg's and everything are "perfect" (whatever that means for a Type 1) and then three months later we are "out of control" and have to adjust the basal or carb ratio, or even the ISF. I thought for certain it was the seasons... hence…See More
