Swimming season is HERE, and I cringe. At least until I get THIS year figured out. Yesterday Maddison had her first full day of swimming in the pool. Swimming seems to equal lows, no matter what I do. Decrease basals. Give extra carbs. Maddison is bound to go low those first few times until I get swimming figured out. It sucks.
Tonight Maddison has been swimming late with her neighborhood buddies. Swimming till 7pm then sleeping shortly afterward isnt a good match. If Maddison goes low in the night, she will not wake up. Its up to me to keep her safe. Checking Maddison in at 97 before bed with .2 active + an hour of swimming time tonight makes for a very long night for me. -Sigh- What will this swim season hold?
15c of juice followed by some PB crackers. Extra PB for staying power. I can only hope this does the trick. Recheck in about a half an hour. So, what if she's still low? Double that? Decrease basals? What happens when she hits the 300's after midnight because she wouldn't come up from the low in those first few sleeping hours? Do I dare correct the high in full knowing her sensitivity to insulin after vigorous swimming is dramatically decreased? What to do? I LOVE summer. I LOVE swim season. But, its not to say that alot of mind power and sleepless nights are ahead. -Sigh- Damn Diabetes!
