    My 8 years old son start pumping today after saline practice... We have been on Nph and humalog for two months and was like perfect condition... except for the scheduling and eating urgency. Now Everything changes I hope he's BG could keep well.... the Medtronic team told me something about carbo ratio that we probably be working on these days.??? Any ideas???

    Congrats! We just started pumping at the end of March and we love it. It's an adjustment so give yourself time to figure it all out and work closely with your CDE (or whomever is helping you). they will help you figure out all the right carb ratios, basals, etc.

    We are right with you - Chris has been pumping for a week now. :) He has had a couple of lows in the night. We have gone from every 2 hour checks at night to 3. Chris does a super job with site changes too. Hope all is well with your experience too!

    Congrats!

    It takes a few days to verify that the initial settings are working well for you. Your CDE or endo should walk you through.

    Enjoy.
