If I give Elise apple juice to bring her up from a low, will diluting it have any effect on raising her BG (either how quickly, or how high)?
The reason I ask is because I don't give Elise the full 15g of carbs for a low. I find it overshoots her and we wind up chasing high numbers later on. So, I usually give her about 2 oz. of apple juice. The problem is, she drinks it so fast that she starts screaming for more. I was thinking that if I do 2 oz. of water and 2 oz. of juice, it would take a bit longer to drink, but also fill her up a bit more.
But if it slows down bringing up her BG, or has an effect on how high it goes, then obviously I don't want to do it.
Anybody have thoughts on this?
