I thought I would post this in this forum as it tends to get more traffic. First, I know some of you know our background, but I will give a short version before I ask the question. Our son is 6 years old and has Neonatal Diabetes. It is the kind which responds to pills and he transitioned back in January of 2007. With the exception of occasional growth spurts, we've never had a lot of blood sugar fluctuation since he transitioned. Back in February of this year, he had a sinus infection and was put on amoxicillin. For some reason this caused a major reaction where he was having lows. We fought the lows (sometimes in the 40's for hours) for about 6 weeks. Eventually he started leveling off and we have been slowly increasing his meds. Now we are about to try him on some ADHD medicine (probably Focalin?). The endo and neurologist are working together on this and have decided to put him on a Dexcom CGMS for a trial period of about 5-7 days. My question is this, where does the Dexcom go? How long do the sensors last? More importantly, how do you keep them on a child who may be sensitive? He has sensory processing disorder and I haven't had to put anything on him like a pump since he was 21 months old. I am scared that this may be a very stressful procedure for him and I'm also scared that he may try to scratch at it or pull it off. His mentality is closest to a 2-3 year old so it's not like we can reason with him or talk to him logically. But I also want to do the trial because I am scared of missing lows if the new medicine does have some sort of interaction with his blood sugar. There is only one other child like my son who has gone on ADHD medicine while on glyburide and he had no interactions, but every child is different so I'm not sure what to expect. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. We will probably do the insertion this Friday.
