Ninny (93 with vascular dementia) has very bad diabetes that we are struggling to control. We changed her medicine a bit a couple days ago but are having trouble figuring out if there has been any positive change because she simply will not stop eating. I know I am supposed to test 2 hours after eating (or, if longer has passed than that, right before she eats), but I can't get a gap like that except first thing in the morning because she never seems to stop eating, so the readings are almost certainly skewed.
I have tried to take her snacks away but this simply agitates her. I have also tried feeding her large meals to keep her from snacking, but she still has her hand in a chip bag or a sleeve of crackers or a bag of bonbons within the hour, even if I 'stuff' her. She never seems to stop being hungry. How the heck can I get accurate readings when she won't stop eating?
