So we get the physicals started. They even check the urine. Do you know your daughter has sugar in her urine. Well DAH she has Type 1 diabetes. No keotone right? Well thats fine then. We finally meet the doctor. She's fine. Nice enough. Not too bubbly but that is ok. She is thorough and gives me all the prescriptions I need. Now I have what I need for the next 6 months and the referral to the new endo. She wasn't too up on what the HBA1C should be and was the one who asked about sugar in the urine. Not too sure about sugar numbers but hey she isn't the specialist.
I got Carylanne into the Neumour Children's Clinic in Orlando in May Soonest I could get was May 19. I was told by the peds doctor that I was lucky to get in that soon. It is a diabetes program though with nurse practitioners and everything. WOW actually diabetes support system. They are on staff at Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital. It's supposed to be a good hospital. Hopefully we never need it!
Now I can get everything filled and hold on til May. They drew blood for the HBA1c yesterday. I expect this one to suck. With being on the road and the stress of moving, I am expecting and 8.5 or higher. I pray I am wrong though. Her numbers these last couple weeks are horrible. I am tweeking basals and carb ratios, checking early morning and finding her at 5m to be 304 or higher. ARRGGHH!!! I know she is in a growth spurt but this is very annoying. 3 weeks ago we had low problems. Then she totally changes gears and starts going high. I am going to change out today and try different insulin. It's got to be more than a growth spurt. She is up to .95 units during pre-dawn and nearly as much for her basals the rest of the day. And she is not being a couch potato. I am hoping we are not experiencing insulin resistance at this age.
Well time to do her shower and change out. Let's hope we get somewhere the new few days. I hate not being able to get ahold of these numbers.
