Take THAT Diabetes!!

Little by little Jeff raised his basals, working conservatively so that Brendon didn't swing the other way and crash. Yet, we still saw ranges in the 350's to well over 400 on a regular basis.

I was all about cranking that shit up and would correct him every chance I got, but he never went below the upper 200's.

Finally, Jeff did a major overhaul by raising his total basals by 3 units and adjusting his bolus ratios. Finally, FINALLY, his numbers have been excellent since last night.

Of course hindsight is 20/20, or at least an illusion to 20/20 when the D is involved.

For the past couple of weeks, Brendon had been complaining of achy legs and would ask me to massage them. I attributed the aches to his playing catcher in his baseball games.

The other day, he weighed himself and said he gain a lot of weight and is now 91 pounds. I can't see extra fat on him, so he must've had a big growth spurt.

Whether it's a growth spurt or not, at least his numbers have been awesome. But, the day is not over! We'll see how it goes over the course of the next few days.


  • Woo! That's one big jump in insulin, but growth spurts will do that to a kid.

    Here's hoping all settles down for him :)

  • I am glad you got it back down. Until the next curve ball. I hate the D.
