I know there is a thread on this that has just been posted, but how do you handle candy when not pumping? I caught Em sneaking candy yesterday... UGH!!! I "lectured " her, probably what I shouldn't have done. But I explained the dangers of misleading me... me upping her insulin when I think her body needs are changing... and then her probably crashing because it isn't what her body actually needed butbecause of the candy.... lalala... She is not on the pump and does NOT want to pump. So my question is do you actually ever give extra injections to your child to allow them to eat candy?? And I don't mean allow small amounts of candy that don't need extra insulin, I mean a larger amount that would need extra insulin. And I don't mean a desert like cake or icecream... I mean candy... pure sugar and junk and yuk? Or do you use only sugarfree candy? And if you do have you found one that actually tastes good?? She is on NPH/ Humulog in AM Humulog for dinner Levemir for bed I am sorry I haven't been here a lot. But I get a bit depressed, listening to all the pumpers and how great it is and having a young teen who doesn't want to use an insulin pump at all..... and I am aware I need to totally back off not mention it etc... and wait for her to come to me with the idea.. But in the mean time it is hard to be here.
