I have a technical question for you, because my 8 year old T1 took a few bites of her breakfast (eggo waffle) swalled a few pieces, was about a minute into it, when we looked at each other and realized she had not taken her premeal bloodsugar.
This happens every once in a great while. So, she immediately put her fork down and we took her BS- it was 195- so high- then I am in a quandry??? Did the few bites enter her bloodstream and taint her fasting reading??.
I know this might be a ridiculously technical question, but then I wonder should I put in 195 as her morning bloodsugar and give her insulin based on that with her carbs?? that is what I do.
I know this must happen to some of you out there- unless, I hope I am not the only one!!! I already feel guilty about messing up- I know no one is perfect- it is just soooo frustrating to make mistakes with your kids- and believe me when I do and/or she does, I really try to teach her that no one is perfect and for her to not get stressed out about it too!! that is alot for an 8 year old to carry on their shoulders.
But, back to question: what do any of you know about this- and what do you do under those circumstances.
Thanks for your input.
