  • I NEVER share food logs especially when it comes to diabetes. Food becomes the enemy when it is picked apart by someone with no knowledge of T1D. If the ENTIRE team has to do it, then sure, I would go along with it. Otherwise no! If he really needs to see something I would provide carb amounts. Realistically though, he is not an endo and has no business trying to help "control" blood sugar in a hormonal teen girl. It's the case of "A little bit of knowledge could be dangerous in the wrong hands". My response would be simply "Thank you for your concern but T1d is very individual for each child so that is why we work closely with our Dr and at this time he/she is pleased with how we are managing the blood sugar numbers."   BLAH! UGH.....I have other words but I would not say them.

    This too. Boy I was way off. I shouldn't have answered in the mind set I'm in today  <roflmao>

  • I'm in the hell no camp too.

    Oh wait... maybe I am on the sure, why the hell not camp.

    IDK! I have mixed feelings. What is his motive? Is he trying to learn or "fix" her? If its the later, he needs a soccer ball

    Really though..... I struggled with none of this because Alyssa never kept a log unless her endo demanded it! :)

  • My response would be hell no... no matter what Rylee thought.  I stand firm on coaches, teachers, etc. playing their own role in the care of Rylee.  Let him in this one time and he won't understand his role to me.  I wouldn't want him trying to tell me how to manage my kid's T1.  I've found that coaches who want to be involved too much have no clue what they are talking about.  I'm very opinionated when it comes to this since Rylee has been very active in sports since dx.

    Totally agree.  One of Abby's coaches told me not to worry about her D care with him, he was totally trained on how to use her epi-pen.   <roflmao>

  • I think he should stay in his lane...soccer coach...but I could just be over reacting...

    That's my reaction too.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Unless this dude is a endocrinologist or a certified diabetes educator, I'd have a hard time with it. The "average" person knows so little about T1D that how could he possibly be of any help? Hell, even my endo isn't much help. I love our team, but diabetes is such an individual condition that it's nearly impossible for him to be of any help.

    HOWEVER - I do agree with the other peeps who say that if Annelies is cool with it and on board, I would let her. I just would be wary of any food-shaming.

    We are entering high school sports too.  Next week Water Polo starts.  I haven't even mentioned diabetes yet to the coach; I don't know the coach.  Kristen isn't home (camp week) for me to even ask her how she wants to handle it.  SO, it will wait until the first day of practice. 

    Kristen struggled during band camp a bit.  BUT those guys have been with her for 3 years in class and know how crazy things can get.  They were just happy she wasn't injured!  I let her take the lead on band camp and I think I am planning on the same thing for Water Polo which could end up being really tricky with possible disconnection during practice (Animas so she can wear in the water). 

    I wouldn't give food logs unless it was a TEAM-wide thing.  NO freaking way.  And if it was a TEAM-wide thing-I'm still not sure I'm ok with it at the Freshman High School level.  Maybe Olympic/World Cup level...but then the training is WAY more all encompassing of life. 

    Regarding what to do for lows/highs...

    I don't know because this is so individual.  We tend to stay away from dairy because Kristen doesn't really like it to begin with.  She uses granola bars or peanut butter crackers to help sustain a low.  Sometimes I'll spend the money on KIND bars which have protein. 

    During band camp, she tried many different things.  She tried a lowered basal (-10% for an hour), not giving all insulin for her lunch, and then conservatively correcting (only giving 1/2 to 3/4).  She did rage correct one day and that was a bad choice and then we had about an hour of lows later.  I think she may have even increased her basal (+10% for an hour) instead of rage bolusing one day; this was done to bring down a high slower.  If I remember correctly, that worked well.  She "texted" me her plans and asked for suggestions and that worked well too.  One day she even asked what the plan was so she could plan insulin/snacks accordingly.  SHE did it and that was NOT something I suggested. 

    I tried to get her to get up earlier to eat breakfast, that didn't work.  She isn't willing to put in that much effort for her sport.  One of her summer swim assistant coaches suggested this but she was unwilling.  Should be interesting when she has water polo practice at 5:15 AM!!!!!  Anyway she would be willing to make sure there is no ACTIVE insulin when practice starts?  That can be hard.

    Good luck.

  • I've been collecting protein bars... yay for Kroger Free Friday lol... will have to check out the Kind bars... I think have nuts, right?  Will have to have her with to pick out and make sure she only eats from home... nut free zone at school.

    Nice thing about working part time from home, is I've been able to switch our lunch/dinner meals... yesterday we had pasta.. figure carb load... and IOB out before 5 when evening practice starts...

    Thanks for the reminder of temp basal to try to slowly bring down... duh, I knew that and use them all the time... escaped my brain

    Attached her dexi for the last 24 hours... the red tail was during practice... false 55 on there... she actually hovered the 100 line

  • This becomes a yes if he is also volunteering to take her for the entire period and make sure shes feed and having her sleep over and he can check her all night and give ya a break.

    Of course thats NOT gonna happen- but seriously. We're all pretty much "Hell no" "mind his business" and of course Julie wants to kick a soccer ball up his ass..........we should understand he sounds like he cares. You can at least appreciate that.

  • Original email I sent:

    Spoiler for Hiden:
    Hi,

    Yesterday after practice, Annelies said she was told to keep a food log for the next three days and give it to you.  Can we get some clarification on this request?

    His reply
    Spoiler for Hiden:

    Hello,

    I asked both of our players who have diabetes to keep track of everything they eat for the next three days and times. I want to know how much of what and when they are eating certain foods. Getting their sugar under control for sports is something that can be a little tricky, but I've taken several classes (at least 5 off the top of my head) on the subject though during my undergrad at Marshall. I think knowing their diet will help me give them better advice and help plan meals more effectively for soccer. I know there are exceptions to every rule, but exercise should be safe and enhance glucose regulation. It should not be that the girls are having to sit out because sugar is too high or low. It's not good for their health, nor development as players.

    Thanks for your question,

    Our reply (Allen wanted to make sure head coach was cc'd)
    Spoiler for Hiden:
    Thanks so much for the quick reply, but we are going to decline this offer of assistance.  She is under the care of a Pediatric Endocrinologist and if at any time, we find it necessary, we have email access with her specialist.

    There are far too many factors, outside of food, with blood sugar management.  We are also dealing with heat, humidity and hormones, just to name a few.  We are also dealing with the difference between playing leisurely for AYSO vs structured practices for competitive games.   Life with Type 1 Diabetes, is trial and error, there is no such thing as control, you can only manage it as best as possible.  One can eat the same exact thing, at the same time for several days in a row and still get varying results.

    She is going to have to sit out on many occasions for the rest of her life, not just soccer.  It's the nature of the disease but we are doing our best to figure it out for her because she loves the game.  And every season she's played in the 7.5 years of living with diabetes, nothing has been the same.  We're going to experiment with a prominent CDE's advice.  Attaching the article, in case you're interested.

    We would certainly would welcome any thoughts you might have with ideas of high protein, no carb foods that a picky eater might eat.

  • Well tickle my pickle, 5 classes!!! That's the fuc*king answer! Thanks guys...at least ONE of you could have told me that and saved me the drama of wonky blood glucose the last 13 years  :o.  I'm speechless (not really). Good luck, I'm sure his head exploded with all the "wrongs" you are doing compared to his 5 class education.
