Yum's numbers keep drifting up. At first it was just the pre shots, but today it is the nadir. Her Lantus bottle is 2.5 months old, so I rushed out to buy a fresh one. The old one isn't cloudy or anything, so it is probably wishful thinking to blame it on the insulin. If her nadir is higher again tomorrow with the fresh Lantus, should I take her in for a blood panel, to look for signs of an infection? I have been so disappointed that her pancreas has stopped showing signs of healing, and now we are going the wrong way. Maybe this is just the awful dance were are in. Also, since her nighttime numbers are always higher than her daytime numbers, is it acceptable to give her a fat shot in the PM and a regular shot in the AM? Humans sometimes have a "dawn phenomenon", where their BG shoots up just before they get up. They are supposed to eat a late snack to ward that off. I used to think that Yum was just bouncing in the evening.
