My 1 yr old daughter Emma was just diagnosed last Sat with type one daibetes. So I am very new with all this. We told our doctors that my daughters bday party is going to be sunday (tomorrow) and we wish we could give her cake. They said we could... the thing I dont get is that she is only supposed to have 30-35 carb meals and 15 carb snacks she gets 1/2 unit for every meal... The cake will be about 4 oz and about 65 carbs... thats twice as much as what shes supposed to have! I tried calling the nurse today but no one got back to me. I guess I will have to call the pediatric endocronologist on call tomorrow. Any ideas on what they might tell me? Im wondering if they will tell me to give her a double dose of insulin? What do you think? I am probably making this a lot more complicated than it really is... if you have any insight let me know! Thank you!
