where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I'm in Portland and my family is taking care of my daughter in Los Angeles. Her numbers keep rising tonight. I'm waiting for the doctor to call me back. Any advice?

She is in the mid-300s now. Drinking water. Wondering if the insulin shot at dinner did not go through

Did she have pizza or other high fat food? If so BG rises over a longer period of time.

Veggie burger and fries. Usually not a problem after gymnastics...but of course the night I am away!

Usually it is late when she eats and we don't check again until 2am. But they did tonight before a super late bedtime and her 24 hour dose.

It's the pizza, defiantly. The numbers will get lower after she finish process the cheese. We give my son extra units for pizza to accommodate for the cheese and we try to limit pizza to once every other week...

She had fries, but I think it is the same concept. Thank you so much!!! She started going down around 12:30am. The resident dr at the hospital never got back to me (Grrrr) but we see them next week.

I find it's a matter of experience as well... The longer you take care of your child with T1D - the better you know what they spoke on....
