We had a meeting with a the research specialist today at the clinic. He was going over different types of studies that have been done. Ands various types we can be involved in as well. Im sure sooner or later we will definitely be interested with being involved in them. As well for some of the research we can have family members join too. But we have alot on our plate at the moment and I know the time will come.
Emma is still "Honeymooning" so she is still producing an amount of insulin which gives both us and her a some time before we really get into this. The NPH insulin that we are giving her right now peaks at around 1.5 to 3 hours after administering. And because of this she has been having more lows than acceptable.
So we discussed today to change to Glargine. This is as well a long lasting insulin. But it is unique because it has no pronounced peak. It is released into the body steadily and continously. This seems to be the best way right now to control the risk of Emma going Hypo.
We talked briefly on diet. Just briefly because we really have got a handle on this. And the fact that our little girls eats like a bird it is really easy to monitor her. She is quickly figuring out that if she doesn't eat her supper that she still will get a desert (just to make up for lost planned CHO's for that mealtime).
Well that is it for now. I wish you all well. And really concentrate and be dilligent about your health. Talk to you later.
