Re: Subject: [IP] Tender Site Life Short - Considering Velosulin/Humalog Mix



HELLO Nancy,
You wrote us earlier (mom-April, daughter-Lacey)
We were about to get some perfect running numbers when all the sudden Laceys
BG went up and began running in the 300s . We supplemented for 3 or 4 days .
Now we have changed from 1 to 20 up to 1 to 15. Still high- increasing all
basals as well.
 Have you seen anything like this ?
We only checked for ketones once- none.
Is this adolescent hormones?
I wish I knew.
We use the 6mm sft set- never haven't had any problems.-----Original
