Re: [IP] Hungry child

l know what your going through, my 12 year old daughter has the same thing
happen to her, she can have great bs's for awile and then out of no where
come these 200's so l up her basil until things settle down, this is very
hard for me to do since l don't like to see her on alot of insulin but if
her own pancreas worked it would be kicking out a whole lot of insulin when
she was going though a growth spurt. l would let her eat what she needs and
treat with extra insulin.
