So, I am very familiar with the pump. I worked with Medtronic for years, and would start adults on the pump, do all the calculations from MDI-pump initial settings, follow them for 6 weeks or so until their numbers were stable. And, one thing we always did, was decrease their TDD by about 25% when going on the pump. Do they do this for kids too? I'm asking, because I just heard the orders my doctor gave for little E's initial settings on her pump, and I'm a bit worried, as they are pretty well exactly what she is taking now, no decrease at all. She gets Levemir 1.5u in the Am, and Humalog 1:40. Her TDD is usually at most 3 units. He asked for her pump settings to be Basal at 0.075u/hr (would mean a total of 1.8u from basal) and her ratio to stay at 1:40. What do you think? Did they decrease your kids when they started?
