Alyssa's Journey with Type 1 Diabetes

An outlet, a diary of sorts, a place for thoughts, a place to connect,
an expression of feelings about Juvenile Diabetes......

First day of school

With the first day of school came a new diabetes schedule. Left behind were the late nights and sleep in mornings. We started the new schedule a few days before school started, but I still knew the lazy days of summer that fit her current diabetes protocol was sure to change with the active life of a new 4th grader. I knew she would be more active so the morning of the first day I reduced her fast acting insulin. Mid morning she had her provided snack, but at lunch time a bg of 70. 2nd day of school, reduced insulin even more, usual snack and a lunch bg of 63. On the plus side, bg's have been normal at dinner which means her dose is good at lunch as well as the carbs in her afternoon snack. Tomorrow I'll make another reduction to see if that helps with the low blood sugar at lunch.
