Hello all my daughter is 8 and was diagnosed 2/2012 at age 4. She has been doing everything old school a while now, Finger checking and us or the nurse administrating her insulin. I can't complain her AC1 been between 7-9 the past 4 years, but I am ready for her to be able to do this on her own a bit more. I am getting Dexcom and we will this is a good first step for her to know when to either eat something ( if she is running low) and give us the peace of mind and sleep at night knowing we will be alerted. My question is how did everyone do transitioning to the pump? Or continuous meter? Is this the best way for them to learn responsibility or do I teach her how to constantly check her sugar and learn how to correct herself? Thank you.
