Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

Which comes first...

... high blood sugars or not feeling well?    In our house, it's always a guessing game.  Sometimes, high blood sugars for a couple of days seem to come just before Rosie starts showing symptoms of the flu or a bad cold. 

Other times, like today, she just doesn't feel good... achy, tired, headache... but I blame that on being mostly in the 300s all night long last night.  I would imagine I wouldn't feel very good after staying that high for 8-10 hours, either.    I'm going to change her site and crank up another temp basal after she finishes breakfast. 

At any rate, we're home today to monitor for ketones and get some rest.

Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
