Spoiled Insulin?

Two highs in a row tonight for apparently no reason. We were expecting lows after the ice skating lesson and we were off schedule - running an hour late.

Blood sugar was 345. Wash your hand and retest. 324. Test again. 317. Bedtime test. over 300 again. Test for Keytones - negative (relief)

For those of you who have been doing this for years this probably seems like we are crazy to worry. Maybe not. To me it is crazy not to.

Check the books. Maybe it is because her insulin isn't working. We've been using hte same bottles we had since we can home from the hospital. (T confirms this theory with the doc after her dinner dose)

We'll see tomorrow.
Change the insulin every 28-31 days from now on.
Learn by our mistakes.
