So yesterday was an important duh, reminder. My son had his last cross country meet of the year, ran well and went to the after meet pizza party. Of course, it was on day three of our latest pump site. Big mistake.
As a side-note, we have been having enough pump site issues, to question whether we should be changing the sites out on day two rather than going for the whole three days.
So allowing teenagers to be teenagers, my son ate 2/3 of the small pizza (about 100 carbs) and a few chicken wings. This required a bunch of insulin. Following our pizza recipe he dosed 100% 20 minutes before eating and dosed an additional 75% over 3 hours. I think that best case, 1/3 of the insulin got into his system. It looked good until 10:30 (ate at 8:00 pm), at which point he blasted to over 300 for 6 hours despite a number of injections to try to bring him into range.
Long story short, we need to try to time our “craziness” to day one or two of a pump site.
