Anyhow. So much has happened and I will cover that shortly but can we talk about summer bgs for a moment??
OMG HOLY CRAP!!
I forgot how hard swimming can be on bgs. Justice has a verY high sensitive to being off his pump. His bgs may seems steady but a few hours later high bg and sometimes ketones occur. We have found that he must wear his pump when swimming. Thank you Animas!
But of course with all that insulin he crashes. So reduced basal? Nope tried that. Crash and soar later.
Soooooo after some experiementing ( did I mention we moved into a rental for the same rent as before but with our own pool?, yea so swimming is a daily must!) we found that leaving the pump on and carb loading works great! He had about 50grams uncovered went in at about 210, swam for a good 2 hours straight and came out at 165! Success! I then bolused for the free carbs and he is holding steady.
Now who knows if this will work tomorrow, but it worked today. So we did this in increments of 2 hours at a time and he had a blAst!
I will not let diabetes stop him from doing what he loves...ever.
Summer is here. Diabetes has reared it's ugly head once again.
This D mama says bring it.
Ooooh it feels good to be back. Now to catch up on all my fav D blogs!
