Man are we having issues with Elise's bed time insulin. She's on NPH, and it seems if we give her 2.5 units, she wakes up in the mid to upper 200s. If we give her 3 units, she wakes up in the 50s and 60s.
Really? Can 1/2 a unit make that big of a difference? Really??? I just don't get it.
When we do her middle of the night check (when we give her 3), she's usually about 190-220 range.
I really want to figure this out.
A question for all you NPH'ers or ex-NPH'ers: When did you give the bed time snack, and the bedtime insulin? Around the same time? A little bit apart? How far apart? Which did you give first?
Okay, that's 5 questions, but I'm trying to figure out if we need to alter her schedule. As of now we give the snack first (15g), and the insulin about 30 minutes later.
Sorry about the disjointedness of this post... I'm really tired, but wanted to put my questions out there in case anyone had some wisdom to share.
Good night... (I hope!)
