Re: [IPk] GlucoWatch update

I could really do with one of these watches, I wonder if they will prescribe
them to children "off list" like they do with other drugs.  Lots of drugs
like Humalog and Novorapid aren't approved for use in young children but
they get prescribed anyway.  I have heard good reports for parents in the US
trialing these watches.

Had a terrible night the night before Sashas blood sugars just kept going
down all night.  I kept giving her juice a and testing every 2 hours and her
blood sugar kept going down all night.  Barely went above 3.8 all night
long.  I kept thinking I was giving too much and she would wake up high but
it was still 3.5 at 7.00am. Dont know what happened there.

I cut down the doses last night and then had to give extra insulin to
correct and it was still a bit on the high side in the morning! Cant win.
