Okay - I'm in a quandry. Today was Grace's first swim meet. And just like last year, her nervousness makes her blood sugar spike. Like, ALL MORNING!
She woke fine, at 113, but went up from there: 200, 283, 28o, 290. I'm correcting, but it seems like all the extra adrenaline from the morning prevents the insulin from working. Then, predictably, she crashed at 65 this afternoon.
I'm not sure what to do. Do I bolus aggressively for breakfast assuming the high will come? But what if it doesn't, and I'm left force-feeding her on race day? Should I raise her basal rate when I see her numbers trending up? All you experienced D-moms out there... I need your help! How do I combat the nervous spike?
