I want to push to get Riley on a flex meal plan asap. She is sick of the stupid fixed plan and frankly so am I. I am available to go and give her shots before lunch at school because she is not ready to do that herself yet. So I dont see a problem with it but I have a few questions.
One if I get it right you give the fast acting insulin before they eat correct? Or is it if they are in normal you dont? Because they take a long lasting one as well still right? haha my one question turns into 3.
This is something I have been thinking about but am not sure of. Like is she eats lunch at noon and then they have a class party a hour later do you give more insulin for what she is going to eat at the party? Or do you wait and correct only if their numbers shoot up?
I really want to understand all of this before I ask to change it. I also want Riley to understand what it all means before deciding if this is the change she wants. More shots isnt something I really think she wants but she might if she has the freedom to eat more or less and when she wants.
also does this help with numbers? Hers are all over the place. She was running low for almost 24 hours and then shot up into the 300's before dinner last night. I dont get it the only change was she had some chips yesterday instead of crackers with her snack. I weighed them out and they were still only 15 carbs. So yeah no clue why unless it was the chips.
