mealtime insulin by two units to compensate for the
heavy activity schedule as well as the heat.
Camp bg numbers so far:
dinner bg 156
bedtime bg 217
bkfst bg 145
lunch bg 158
How did I get these figures from camp, you ask?
The health aide (no nurse or medical personnel on staff) texts them to me! I gave her four pages of information related to managing Riley's diabetes yesterday when I dropped him off.
- Page 1 - their meal schedule for the week with my added carb counts from Calorie King and other sources
- Page 2 - log to keep track of each bg test, carb count per meal and insulin unit amount injected
- Page 3 - list of low symptoms and treatment procedure & list of the supplies and where they can be found in the dining hall. (ie back up insulins in the refrigerator, testing supplies/snacks/ketone strips/glucagon in the plastic bin and ice packs (one for each day) for bg meter in the freezer)
- Page 4 - our contact numbers and MUSTS for Riley: kit in his knapsack on his back with fast acting candy & lists of when to contact me - bg over 200 in the morning, bg over 300 anytime, a low under 65 and any insulin injection error
As I said goodbye, leaving him in the hands of a 19 yr old health aid, I tested the water by saying I would see him Wednesday just to check his numbers and make any insulin changes on my way to a job in a nearby town. I had to say it twice to really get his attention to which he replied, "OK, but just don't talk to me."
