Well, we had our 3 month endo appt this morning. This is the one with the nutritionist and not the doctor. So the good news is that my son grew over 1 inches from last time and is now the exact same height as me! He is 14. The bad news is that it has been really, really hard even with the pump to regulate his blood sugars. Wild ride of ups and downs, I am guessing massive growth spurts and hormones....anyway, A1C went from 7.3 to 8.3. So with some talking it over and suggestions they want him to try tethering for a couple of weeks to see if the sugars would be doing better on some Lantus. With the pump doing a minimal .275 per hour drip and then just bolusing through the pump. Now in the past....last year he went on Lantus/Humalog during the summer months cause of his active lifestyle (skateboarder) and having issues keeping his site on all the time. It was easier and frankly we did see that his numbers were a lot more stable during that time. But with school starting it was back to pumping. Nice break but no way he was going to take like 5 shots a day. I am thinking this tethering is a nice compromise. Just one shot a day (Lantus at night) and everything else the pump is handling. So anyone out there with a teenager is mid puberty doing tethering? Would like to hear how the numbers for bg have been going if you are on it. Thanks all!
