Hi guys, sorry I haven't updated my blog for a while but I've been quite busy.
Yesterday I went to a support group for type one diabetes families. They showed me a new type of pricker (glucose tester). They also gave me a booklet of about a super hero squad that explains diabetes for older kids instead of the teddly bear books they use for younger kids. This book is cool because it is fun to read -it is done in cartoon style.
This week I have had quite a lot of hypos and quite low readings after I played ten minutes of basketball. But after we had a meeting with some of our new friends with diabetes they said to take some sort of sugar boost just before playing sport and then about ten minutes later have an apple or something to sustain you. We also reduced my insulin by a couple of units and it has stopped me from having so many hypos which is great. But now my blood glucose is a bit high which is OK for a little bit but I may have to have more carbs or insulin.... so we have to keep a close eye on it.
