My son is 4 and was only diagnosed in February, but I want to get started with the pump and CGM as soon as possible. I actually wanted to start the CGM first, but talking to our doctor she kind of blew me off saying that little kids really don't need them, and it really wasn't that important. I wanted to say "well, you're not the one who is losing sleep wondering about how your child is doing". She said that Dexcom isn't approved for kids under 12, which I knew, but there are still plenty of doctors that prescribe them. Is there anything that you have done to convince your doctor that you need one, or am I basically looking at having to get a new doctor? I don't want to be that overreacting parent, but I also want what is best for my child. With a very active 4 year old who doesn't show signs of hypo, or knowing how he is feeling at all I just want to be as prepared as I can. What are your thoughts? Should I just wait for a while and ask again in 3 months or be more proactive? Other than this one issue she is great, she even said we could get a pump as soon as we wanted too, I just wish we were on the same page with the CGM.
