Yes, she goes to a pediatric endocrinologist. And they've been doing this since she's been diagnosed which is almost 3 months now. about 50% of the time they need to feed her at one point during the night. The endocrinologist has revised his recommendations about feeding her--now they only need to feed her if she's under 70. But it all depends on what the slope of her numbers are overnight. If she plummets down then she definitely needs to be fed and they need to check her even more frequently. If the numbers go to 70 and stay there, then they need to check her levels every 30 minutes to 1 hour!
Last night, I went over to take care of her and these were her numbers:
8:30PM (right before bed): 104--they fed her about 10 grams CHO to bring up her number
2:30AM: 105 (huh?!)
don't know her wake up number--as I left.
So luckily I didn't have to feed her and she didn't wake up any of the times I stuck her but it broke my heart to interfere with her so much! But about 50% of the time, she goes under and they need to feed her. Maybe with the new low of 70, they might not have to feed her as much. But is there really a risk of her going into a hypoglycemic coma overnight? Does this make sense to anyone else?
Thanks so much for your help!
