Fwd: [IPk] one injection per day



Hi Abigail,

Stoppng the pm inection did stop miles having hypos every night but we still 
do have the occasional one.

However we have found that if Miles has pasta for his dinner at night this 
will maintain his sugars thru the night at an acceptable level. Im just so 
lucky to have a little boy who loves pasta and will eat it every night in 
some different way.

To be honest i think that the hospital have to start looking at changing 
miles regime soon, he starts school in september the first time he has been 
out of my care since he was 2 and diagnosed.

As i have said before i really do not have alot of faith in any of the team 
at our clinic, the paediatrican is not an expert in D he basically blames 
any change in miles sugars as a virus affecting the insulin and once when i 
took him to hospital with severe vomiting and a blood sugar of 1.2 i was 
told that we over care for him.....how can you overcare for a 2yr old with 
D?????

We never get to see the dietician or the family therapist and were lucky if 
it is our consultant and not one of his underlings who we see.
I am in the process of looking into hospitals in our area and if anyone has 
any experience with hospitals in the Essex area especially, Basildon or 
Southend can you let me know your views.

i speak to so many other parents around the world with young children with D 
especially in Australia and the States and their specialists are so forward 
thinking with the pumps and everything else and they listen to the parents 
and the patient as they believe they are the best judge of what is happening 
to them, if only our british doctors could do the 
email @ redacted


sorry to go on so much but having a bad day today.

has stopping the pm injection solved the overnight problem? Are his levels 
now
way too high in the evening and in the morning. I would think it almost
certain that some form of insulin would be needed even if a very low dose or
in a combination that can't be given by mixtard
Good luck in finding a better clinic!
