So obviously we are still very new to this adventure, and with the gracious help from all of you on here we’ve been able to start finding a better understanding of how to treat Jayce (my son).
However, we still find ourselves scratching our heads quite often when things like this happen out of blue!
He spiked last night (all night long) and again this morning. We’ve bolused for every meal, done corrections to bring him back down, and he just wouldn’t budge.
He hovered super high all morning/afternoon then 2 hours after his last bolus/meal (also 7 hours after his Lantus) we get alarms going off left and right for double arrows down from 250 to 80 in just 1 hour… we gave him one apple juice (24g crabs) at 80 because Dex was showing now signs of slowing. 30 minutes after the apple juice he’s back up to 200!!! 24g of carbs has never spiked him that much, that quickly before…
We did one finger poke around the 115 mark on dexcom and it read 104, so not far off, Dex has been on point with the readings.
He was not playing heavily or doing anything strenuous.
Not under any stress or having any emotional outburst of any kind.
Last insulin injection (Humalog) was over 2 hours ago.
Dexcom sensor is only 2 days old.
We’ve had these crazy “rollercoaster” spikes and drops at random times before (confirmed by finger pokes) where we just can’t find a logical reason for any of it. It’s been as crazy as like 100+ points in less than 45 minutes! We never ever load him up with insulin (so no major overlap) and same with eating (we always treat “lows” in small increments as to not over do it).
We’re at a loss. It’s just so odd. Any ideas?
