My daughter is still honeymooning nicely. Her morning numbers are usually between 70-90 when she wakes up, although the past couple weeks we have seen more numbers in the 100's (this morning was 117). Her needs for insulin are slowly creeping up though, when we started insulin it was 1/2 unit Novolog for 60 carbs and now we are at 1/2 unit for 40 carbs. At 60 carbs she barely ever took Novolog since she's little and doesn't eat that much, but at 40 carbs we are hitting that a little more. She also takes 1/2 unit of novolog if her blood sugars are 300 or above. She also takes 1.5 units of Lantus in the morning and 1 unit at night. We went to the endo last week and the social worker informed us that Medtronic had reps there if we were interested in talking to them. I said sure. In all honesty I had assumed we would wait until she was on more shots in a day, not 2-4 a day as she is now. I also wanted to meet with Animas, so no action was taken that day (and the sales guy was terrible, didn't really answer my questions). I did ask the CDE what her opinion was on my daughter and the pump and I pressed her to give me her personal opinion about our specific case. She said that personally at that young and tiny with such little insulin needs she would not do the pump yet. She said she thought it would be more hassle to have her wearing the pump all the time. But she did say that ultimately the decision was ours. Fast forward to last night. SG stayed with our family friends house with her sister across town. My husband and I had a great night, but of course around 5:30 we had to stop everything, drive across town and give her her lantus. Then they did a bedtime test. She had eaten some treats, but not 40 carbs worth but her blood sugar was 372, again drive across town to give her a shot. This morning was the same thing, drive across town to give her Lantus. It's not that big of a deal, but it did make me start thinking about the pump a little more. It would have been nice to tell my friend to push a few buttons and she would be well taken care of. Also school is another area that I am concerned with her needs going up a little. There is no school nurse but once a week. I also would think that you would be able to fine tune her insulin needs. At this point giving her 0.5 units of Novolog for 40 carbs and if she doesn't eat 40 carbs she still goes high sometimes like last nights 372. It would be nice to maybe give her .25 units for 20 carbs and keep her steady. So all that to say, what are your personal opinions about this? Would you pump yet or not?
