Here are a few photos I’ve recently posted:

After picking Q up from diabetes camp, we were back to the reality of carb counting.

Q had a bit of a CGM break. I was really glad to put it back on. This is what popped up when it asked for her calibration BG’s!

Whoops! In all the excitement I forgot to bolus for her corn dog at the fair.

I am a D-mom of 26 months old. She has been diabetic since 15 months. I was told by a diabetic educator that she can go onto pump and CGM next fall. Having said that she uses 3.5 units of glargin a day (2 unit in the morning and 1.5 unit in the evening). Glargine pen dials only whole number so I have to draw insulin using syringe. With 7 million users in the world, why couldn’t they come up with better insulin pen that is toddler baby friendly?

does anyone uses different pen to administer glargin other than the one that has one unit increments?

I’m not familiar with glargine, but we used the NovaPen Junior which did half units.
