Our 9 year old daughter was diagnosed in Sept of 2005 (beginning of the school year!) with type 1. Just a couple of weeks ago we switched her over to the pump. She has a very active life (lots of sports, active play...etc.) and we thought that the pump would be great. We were trying for very tight control and she was experiencing lots of lows. Anyway, our issue with the pump is that we seem to have to switch sites very frequently. Last night we did a new site at 1:00 am because she was 22mmol/l and bolusing was not helping very much. This change in sites came after less than 48 hours with the same site. This has happened to us a lot. The pump appears to be functioning, but her blood sugar is staying high. Then, of course when we change the site, with no addtional boluses, she has a low. Yeesh! Does this get easier? Any suggestions for other sites that work better than the belly? thanks everyone. this is a great comfort to us.
