Every day will be full of surprises, it seems.
I’m really astonished by this.
Last night, despite that I tried to push Juno up a bit before he slept at 9.45pm, within about 45 minutes he was back down in the range of 108-120 and I watched this apprehensively until I couldn’t stay up any longer, probably at around 2.30am. He was in this range, with none of his usual elevations, for around 5hrs. I’m anticipating the coming low — based from his past readings — at 5am, thinking that because he’s now at 110, the low will be very low this time.
Usually I can go all night and not need sleep, but last night I was so exhausted I went to lay down next to Juno and wait for the Spike app alarms to trigger, hoping — between now and the arrival of the Bluetooth speaker I’ll use at night to amplify them — that I will hear them.
I wake at 6.15am and Juno is putting his clothes on. I go to look at his graph, and no lows. He’s 86 when I wake up
Basically, 8hrs within a range of 80-120.
I make him breakfast (two egg omelette in flat bread, plus Nutrifit muesli bar and banana milk and apple slices) and bolus 1 unit. The muesli bar always elevates him. It’s what I used yesterday when I was testing to discern his ratios. Alone, it adds 60 mg/dl over one hour.
Off to school, but even with all that food onboard, the 1 unit is pulling him down as he goes to class at a rate of -10 mg/dl from a reading of 89.
So, from a high of 160 to 89 within 30 minutes, all from 1 unit pre-bolused at 7am when he was 69.
He gets another muesli bar.
I start to wonder if we need to bolus Juno at all.
p.s., The low on this chart was purposive, as described in a post above.
