Christopher will be starting insulin shots tomorrow morning. His sugar level has been sitting between 6 and 12 (104 and 208) which isn't too bad but high enough that we can start some insulin.
He will have 4 units of protophane (NPH) each morning and for now and we will see how that affects his blood sugar levels.
The good thing about catching it so early is that he will probably have a long honeymoon period. A honeymoon period is where the pancreas still produces some insulin but the not enough on its own. This means that Christopher will need bsl tests before each meal and about two hours after to make sure the insulin isn't making him low.
He has adjusted to the bsl tests really well and even asks sometimes if we can check him when I tell Tom he needs to check.
