Day One: 8:25 am Arden is awake

Scott Benner

This morning Arden’s BG was 218 at 8:27 am.  That’s too high.  It’s interesting because I put her to bed last night at the same BG I put her to bed at the previous night.  Yesterday morning doing the same exact thing she woke up at 74 (way too low).  

I gave Arden her long acting insulin (called Levemir) at 8:30 am. More on Levemir later...

Arden is hungry now... I have to go make her breakfast, count the carbohydrates in it and give her another shot of a fast acting insulin called Novolog.  The Novolog starts to work in about twenty minutes, peaks at two hours and burns out in three hours.  Click here for a video of Arden’s morning test and shots.
