I thought I’d show what my hormone peaks look like. Here are mine from yesterday:
You can see it goes up really fast, like a rocket. As soon as I see it breaking 120 I inject, but it’s impossible to stop. The best I can do is bring it down as quickly as I can. But it’s very difficult to figure out how much insulin you need. Most of them need a lot more insulin than a regular correction factor. But some need a lot less. So they are hard to manage.
For the morning one, now I start an extended bolus at breakfast. I had an extended bolus going yesterday, for instance: 6 units for 1.5 hours. But it did not stop it. It may have lowered its peak though. I get worse peaks too, sometimes up to almost 400.
The other thing about puberty as that my basal changes all the time. I am at 0.8 right now per hour, but last week I was at 1.05 for 4 or 5 days, and before that I was at 0.75 for several days too. That’s without sports, because I have an ear infection again so I still can’t swim. With sports it changes a lot more.
I figure it’s great training for later. When i am on my own, it will be a lot easier and I’ll be totally ready
