Sometimes, you just gotta eat cake. And as strict as I am about some of the foods Elise eats, she was going to get cake on her birthday! And since we're staying with friends, I wasn't going to attempt to make my own. I did, however, scrape the icing off. I used a carb factor of .5, and it worked perfectly! Her BG at bedtime check was 94.
I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I am just a Mom whose little girl has Type 1 Diabetes. On this blog you will find tips and advice, but it should NEVER be a substitute for your doctor's wisdom. If your child has diabetes, or you suspect that your child has diabetes, please seek the attention of a healthcare professional, and not some crazy, over-worked, frazzled, sleep-deprived nutjob who has staked out her corner of the world-wide-web-information-super-highway and is espousing her viewpoints from it.
But I think that's good advice when it comes to anything, don't you?
