    I have given him high carb FF gravy lovers and opened his mouth and put Karo Syrup in his mouth, in 25 min, he was @ 190, Will he continue to climb up or will I need to continue to feed the rest of the night and monitor.

    That is a huge jump, but definitely a more reassuring number. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with Lantus, but since it's a slower-acting insulin, I am assuming there is a chance he could start decreasing again as the food and Karo start wearing out and the insulin kicks in. I would continue to test fairly regularly to make sure he stays safe. I'm so sorry. I feel so useless, not having any experience to help you out with any certainty, but I just wanted to let you know you weren't alone at least. :oops: Hopefully someone more knowledgeable comes along shortly! :bighug:

    Any time you resort to high carb food (or Karo/honey/syrup), you want to continue to test for at least 2 hours from the last time you had to use it.

    Test every 30 minutes for an hour and then test one more time an hour later (for a total of at least 3 tests in 2 hours)

    If they drop too low again, that 2 hour "clock" starts over

    I will probably need to plan on staying up tonight. Or if he does not drop down for a certain amount of time does that mean his BG numbers will sty up.

    If the numbers stay up for 2 hours from the last time you had to feed anything HC (or Karo/honey/syrup), you should be fine

    IF he drops too low again and you have to feed HC again, that 2 hour clock starts over
