Re: [IP] Growth Spurt/ Increased Insulin Use
we just went through this
with geneva and it lasted about a week and a half. it seemed to occur
right around halloween and I was blaming the candy...but she was just eating
anything and everything.
when I finally got aggressive
with her basals....boom...down she came. we are living with somewhat
normal BGs now for two days.
you just never know with young
kids. up and downs are part of the pumping program.
just keep in your mind now that
as soon as you start to see higher numbers (especially if you are on a
first day or two of a site....) and if pump is functioning fine...that it
is prob. the signal of growth. I am now automatically increasing geneva's
basals by about 15%....YMMV>
mom to a growing 10 1/2 yr. old
who is stable for now.
>His logs for the last few days show he is
eating HUGE amounts of
food and taking boluses right and left and his blood
sugars (previously 78
to 130 with an occasional glitch) are in the 200's
