Today I am super frustrated and looking for advice! Our diabetes team only works with medtronic products. I did my own research and went against their advice and chose the animas pump. We are military and move a lot so I decided to choose the pump that was the best for us instead of the best for the endo's office. We've had the pump for a month. They "may" let us start pumping mid-June but are dragging their feet because no one in the office is "comfortable" starting a child on a non medtronic pump. Today was our quarterly appointment. I desperately want a cgms but was told they are not used for children. I was told that there are no unexplained highs, ds must be sneaking food. And, my personal favorite, was that we have to change our schedule in order to pump. We are a homeschooling family on a very non traditional schedule. We stay up late and sleep in late. It works for us. CDE said that ds has to get up earlier in the morning because if he eats at noon that counts as lunch even if it is his first meal of the day and she said it is very important for children on a pump to eat breakfast. Seriously considering going rogue.
