    Hi my daughter was diagnosed as type 1 at the end of October last year, we have been going through the honeymoon period over the last few months having lots of hypos and adjusting her carb ratio but these last few days she's been having hypers. She isn't unwell, could it be that her ratio needs lowering. Our diabetic nurse has had a bereavement and is currently unavailable to ask the question to, I have been told to ring the hospital and speak to the registrar if I have any problems. Not sure what to do. Thanks

    Can you give the last 24 hour bgs and what doses your daughter on?

    If your daughters levels are going high, what you do will be down to the times of the highs.. And what insulin regime your daughter is on...

    Does your daughter have any breakfast or anything to eat at all before her lunch?
