This was youngest daughter’s blood sugar reading after 7 units of insulin as a correction factor an hour before when the reading was 535. I think the tubing to her insulin pump may have been twisted today, or the cannula got bent, or something was off. Her numbers have been crazy since noon today. We’ll check her blood sugar again in an hour and see where she is. I hope the numbers will be closer to her goal range (80 to 150). I tend to get a little nervous when her blood sugar is this high.

She’s had moderate ketones this afternoon, which is another clue that she was not getting enough insulin. I’m sure she’d not be happy to know that I’ve just shared information about ketones in her urine, so I will stop with that.
