You know how Diabetes does weird unpredictable, make no sense crazy things? Well, Maddison is still having the WEIRD WEIRD DOUBLE WEIRD, MAKE NO SENSE LOWS every single day at 1:30 regardless of EVERY attempt at reducing her doses!!
This afternoon Maddison checked in at 223 before going down to her buddy's house on the corner. No active insulin. Basal rate is already reduced AGAIN today....Just planning to watch that number and not correct. 2o minutes later here comes Maddison down the street, her buddy telling me Maddison is acting silly and feels urgently low. What time is it? Its 1:20 of course.....she's 80. HOW THE HECK DID THAT HAPPEN YET AGAIN!!?? In 20 minutes? That's quite a drop! 13c of Skittles.....I was sure that would set her too high for an 80 wouldn't you think? NOPE. Next check, 58. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON??
This weirdness wouldn't be so weird if it were continuing through the day. But a steep drop, STILL after changing everything so drastically? Looks like we are going to turn her basal to zero for a few hours. WEIRD WEIRD WEIRD!!
