Dylan's birthday was at the beginning of the month and he has had the opportunity (with going out to dinner and parties) to have more ice cream than normal and I am SHOCKED at how high his numbers get. Normally I will give him about 2-3T of ice cream after dinner on one of those kiddie cones and it really doesn't affect his numbers. Two weeks ago we went to Friendly's and he had a sundae for dessert after dinner and we gave him twice his normal dose of insulin to cover the ice cream. about 5 hours after dinner and dessert his number was in the high 300s; we did a correction shot and kept an eye on him all night.
So the next two times he had ice cream we tried splitting the dose; half at dinner and then half 2 hours later at bedtime and again he was high overnight. we did give him his normal bedtime snack and maybe we shouldn't when he has ice cream like that.
Anyone have any insight to help?
He has his endo appointment next week and I will bring it up there as well.
