Re: [IPp] night corrections



Hello Hun

we have started using Carnation Instant good start drink at night times for
lows.They work well and she stays good until morning. Usually I only give 1
cup but if majorlly low, I do the whole big 2 cup amount and treat for highs
in the morning if need be. We now also have cans of ENSURE, This is can
fluids that they often feed folks who cannot eat a solid diet.It comes in
several flavors and she loves the orange.  We only give 1/2 of this can as
one small can has 32 grams of carbs and she usually runs high if she gets
the whole can.

We had alot of lows last week or so then this week she went sky high. Today
she looks back to normal so far so I won't test every 2 hours tonight. I
need my sleep too..lol

Hope this helps you some
