We have only been pumping since 4/9/14 with revel 723, and after our last doctors appointment(5/14/14) i'm ready to call it quits, I hate our doctor!!!! I pretty sure doctors are supposed to listen to our concerns, and assist if assistance is needed. here is what our experience was this week... first issue...after starting pumping DD has been testing a bit more due to lows, highs, and unknowns, I requested a change in her prescription to get some more test strips because we are running out within 3 weeks of getting them, our doctor was very confrontational about it and said we are testing too much, that she should only need to test breakfast, lunch, dinner,2 hours after each meal, bedtime, and 3 am. So my question to him was... what about when she feels high or low, which is happening all day long, or when her BG is 50 and shes had a juice, we aren't supposed to check to make sure she is coming back up? He flat out ignored my questions and moved on. Second...our first shipment of infusion sets and reservoirs was 20 of each, which came just days before our pump start, so knowing she will be at school and at her Dads a few days a week, I left some at each place, thinking that is what insurance would pay for each month, which left us with 15 or so. after calling medtronics to place our order for May we found out that Our insurance only allows for monthly billing, and with her having state medical as a secondary insurance it is taking every bit of 14 day to process. Since her prescription is wrote as changing every 3 days our insurance will only allow 10 sets a month, and our first shipment was for 2 months, which shouldnt have been able to process, so our next shipment will ship the end of may, We have had a few issues with kinks or just oops's and 2 I have no idea, lets just change it. 10 sets a month, that leaves no room for error, is there anyone who has only used 10 a month? I asked the doctor to change her prescription to allow for some extras, His response was..."the fact that you left some at other places is a personal issue and I can not help with personal issues" and walked away. We have had to use the ones that were left at these places already, I requested some samples from medtronics just to try them and see if she liked them, so that how we are getting through the rest of the month. we are on such a limited income that if we cannot be 100% covered by insurance we will have to quit the pump Third...I asked the about decreasing her basal and increasing her carb ratio, she is food spiking horribly, 2 hours after meals she is 300-400 but 4 hours after meals she is on the high side but almost good, i was thinking a lower carb ratio would almost fix this issue, Doctor literally started talking over the top of me and wouldn't listen, basically dismissing me. Really!?!?! Im putting my daughters life in your hands and you cant even listen to my concerns!!! Forth...I haven't slept in weeks due to BG checks at night from highs and lows, I feel that this would help with the night time, I have done tons of research and felt that the pros outweigh the cons, and which brand i felt would be the best...so i asked...According to the doctor, it is his decisions and he felt it was not in our best interest, and the fact that i wanted a dexcom was un-thinkable, but just to humor me, he would have the medtronics rep call me. I know we have a medtronics pump but that doesn't mean we have to have their CGM, Right? We do not have any pediatric endo's in the area, this one is an hour away, next one is over 2 hours away, but I'm almost ready to make those trips, just to see someone else... I know things will get better, and soon will even out but I'm almost at my wits end now!!!
