    We have been pumping about a month now. The first couple of weeks he was ok. Now, he has had some really wacky high numbers the last few days (300's). He seems to go up in the afternoon and on into the night. I know we need to do some basal testing, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it. He is wearing a cgm also. How long of time spans do you test? 4 hrs? 6 hrs? How ofter do you do a bg check? He is 11, so I'm not sure how long I can hold him off from food. We did go to the Endo today, and I mentioned I needed to do it, but forgot to get directions how.
    Thanks so much!

    Honestly, I don't. If I see BG rising on the CGM and I know food is not to blame, I adjust basal.
