Heatwave.

I am coping fairly well with the hot weather. It is playing havoc though with both Tom and Christophers sugar levels. Both of them have had hypos in the last 24 hours that have been pretty severe.

The next 5 days are all going to be above 40 (105) and then we still will have temps in the high 30's. I am going to speak to their endocrinologist today and probably set Tom's basal a bit lower and give Christopher less insulin too. I just hope they don't start swinging from really low to really high. That is when diabetes starts to become really hard to manage and can take over our lives.

Prayers would be appreciated and I will keep everyone updated.

Thanks
Therese

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
