Or, in our house:
Specifically, Ellie's blood sugar numbers are the moving target and insulin is the pointed arrow.
- carb intake
- emotional status (crazy excited or even steven)
- carb type (not all are alike!)
- age of insulin
With all of the above considered and properly dosed, will the acting pancreas be able to hit the moving target?
If the meter reveals a number outside of the range, the acting pancreas may throw a hissy fit.
Both are completely acceptable reactions, but the acting pancreas must get over it quickly because this scenario will play out multiple times a day, every day, until a cure for T1D is discovered.
Until then, Ellie's blood sugar numbers will continue to be a moving target.
May I (or the acting pancreas) always shoot with Love, lOve, loVe, lovE.
