Hi - first of all can i ask for no judgy comments just simple advice? About my son, terrible control, but going onto mdi to try and improve things. Just come back from dietician appt re carbs etc but still have a couple of questions. Son age 13 been on 2 injections a day since diagnosed 2 years ago. He is being switched over probaby at beginning of next half term (whitsun) to mdi. This is because his hba1c is horrendous (continually over 14 for the last 3 clinics). It is because he basically eats whatever, whenever, sneaks food etc etc. He is happy to be changing over, and fingers crossed for a lower hba1c in the next 3 months. He knows he has to do more tests and keep some records - this will be the battle I think. Luckily for now the diabetic team just want to work round his current eating patterns, try and get him to be honest about what he eats, and fit round it - any more at this stage and it would be doomed to failure. One issue we covered was that if he 'grazes' then it will be hard to give the right amount of insulin, and there will be highs. She said if he had a small snack with up to 10 - 15g carbs not to inject for it, but then for example if he had another one of similar size an hour later, then to inject for both when he has the second snack. Also she said if for example he snacks through a pack of biscuits, then may be to inject for a few - say 3 or 4 before he starts eating them, and then see how many he ends up eating and inject for the rest later. Does this sound like a good plan you experienced folk? Also - he will still end up buying and eating sweets - yes I know what he 'should' be eating and no amount of talking, discussing, moaning, etc will stop him - he has just become secretive about what he eats but eats it anyway. So given that he will at some point buy sweets - how would you deal with these insulin wise? Inject, not inject? I know the sweets will cause his sugars to rise quickly and fall quickly so it could be dodgy injecting for the amount of carbs coz he might go hypo?
