I'm reaching out to my wonderful internet peeps to help answer another question I have; how can you tell when a high BG is the result of a low BG and subsequent dumping of glucose by the liver?
How high of a number would you see? Would it keep going up, or start coming down on its own at some point?
The reason I ask is because Elise's BG was 281 upon waking from her nap this afternoon. She wakes up pretty much every day with a BG of about 120 or lower, and on some days she's below 80. We've had to work with her lunch time carbs because she was waking up from EVERY nap with a low BG. Today she overslept by about 30 minutes, and that number is very, very high for her at that time of day.
The other reason I wonder about this is because her dinner time BG was higher than the BG when she woke up from her nap. If I don't give her a snack (which obviously I didn't today), her BG always goes DOWN at dinner time. I think her BG was 318.
I know I'm trying to make sense of the nonsensical, but I really have a strong feeling I missed a low. And if that's the case, I don't want to let her oversleep again.
As always, thanks for any ideas you have... mwah, you are all wonderful!
