OK DOC I need a little help.
We have recently started to see a dramatically, majorly, HUGE difference in Cara's insulin needs depending on where she is. I think it may have something to do with nerves/excitement when she is at school but it is getting out of hand now.
A little while ago we realized that Cara runs higher at school then she does at home.
The nurse looking at her numbers between home and school and asked "What in the world do you have Cara doing at home, running laps?"(she was thinking that extra exercise was dropping her low at home) NO! I replied. They do NOTHING at home. I think she is just comfortable at home and at school she has a lot of nerves kicking in which is raising her blood sugar. So we knew we might need a different basal rates for home and school.
BUT NOW IT IS GETTING CRAZY!! I think we are going to need 2 different basal and bolus rates depending where she is.
Has anyone ever experienced this? If so what did you do? and what was the cause?
Thanks so much for your help!! and of coarse we will be asking our endo what to do :)
