Hi! Brand new here and my "cupcake" (at the hospital they told her she had cupcake-y blood and had to rinse it out with the IV, the nickname stuck) was dx 7-22. I am pretty positive we are now honeymooning. We were at a 1:10 carb ratio, had to adjust dinner back to 1:15, and she has started tanking on me at bedtime. In the last two days, the tank outs have extended to afternoons as well. I know I need to fix the carb ratios again, but I would love to know a bit more what to expect from some other people who have walked the walk. When she gets low right now, we are getting blood sugars of down as low as 31. Last night she was low, she got a snack and when we tested, she was lower than before the snack! I gave her a double snack and retested and managed to get her up to 90. I am a bit nervous and frustrated, and am not sure what carb ratios to use for the school nurse. Can anyone tell me how they lived to tell about this?
