We are only 2 months into diagnosis, so you may be laughing that this thread. I am wondering, if BG numbers are good and our son is happy with MDI, why go to a pump? Everyone I have talked to says it changed their (and/or their child's) life. Tell me, how? My son does not want anything attached to his body. As far as he's concerned, the two minutes of shots three times a day is totally doable. We just switched to the Humalog pen which is a revelation - easy to dose, more portable, etc. And he gets his Lantus via syringe once a day. You still have to count, measure and weigh everything that goes into your child's mouth, so that step is not eliminated. I know you will have tighter control with the pump, but also more risk of lows. As a new T1D parent, of all the risks with this disease, hypoglycemia - when I can't be with him, or am asleep and unaware - terrifies me. Why would you want to nudge a decent BG of, say, 140 downward and risk going too low? If the glucose meters are only within 20% of accurate, that 140 could really be 112, and that extra insulin could cause a low. Is not the 70-180 range they gave us a good target? I must be missing something. Share your wisdom with me, veteran T1D parents!
