yikes! i saw your post about the pms spikes, my son is 14 obviously i cant offer up to much info other than support, i have heard this can happen but didnt realize it could be so extreme, i would try posting that question on the main type 1 page and you could probably get a good discussion going with women with years of experience, maybe it settles out a bit as the years go on, i certainly hope so i would worry about her crashing down after, i think a call to your endo might not be a bad idea to to help with a strategic plan, i think i would encourage low carb eating that week. in an case just wanted to let you know you were thought of today, hope things get better! amy
OH No!! I can see how that would happen. Yes, you can see the + and - on it as you dial it! we have just been lowering the dose using the exact dose since she is only on .1u of basal, our only choices are .05 or .1!! She did three hard hours of choreography today with that and started at 109 and ended at 119. AMAZING!!
I am SO glad to hear that! Today is Kennedy's first day of choreography with the pod. She's a competitive dancer and pretty routinely does 5 hour stints of class, technique, today is choreography with a guest choreographer, so we are hopeful she can get through it without a major mishap! We bolused for breakfast 1.2 units, then started a temp basal of .05 down from .1 for the duration. I told her just go for it! She's got the pod on her belly with some purple coban wrap, which is sufficiently cool appearing for her! I wish your daughter the best, Kennedy would love to catch up with her sometime.
looking forward to learning with you and troubleshooting! ( Did I read you are a nurse? I am a pediatrician! www.personalmedicine.comwww.personalmedicineofkentucky.com and most recently blogging at www.healthergy.net
