Look at me, using y'all! If you gals only knew how Southern I am NOT, it would be hysterically funny.
Question for you Mommas who are using pumps with your kiddos....
Does your morning carb:insulin ration and morning basal for your kid look nothing like the rest of the day?
In other words, does anyone else out there have a kid who needs A LOT of insulin when they wake up and eat breakfast? Grace definitely has dawn phenomena and has blood sugar that rises in the early morning. (When she was on MDI her carb ratio for the morning was 1:10 and that got her through til just before lunch.)
Now that she is pumping, her carb ratio from 6:30 am - 11:30 am is 1:14 and her basal is .45.
I think she needs more basal and a lower I:C ratio, as during her mid-morning check at school, we are seeing numbers like:
Curious as to your kiddos out there - do they need a higher basal rate during the morning hours and a higher carb ratio for breakfast hours?
