Just joined group yesterday...my name is "Kim" i have a seven yr old son w T1 diabetes...he's on injections and eats constantly. Endo jus mentioned a pump and I have to go to a class for pumps this wednesday. I am researchn and viewing all your comment in all the pro's and con's. He is a active larger(tall) for his age. It has been rough keepn him on target with all these growth spurts and being hungry constantly. I am leaning toward the omnipod..would love any input on ANY pumps. I am affraid on the tubing getting caught while playn or wrestln his twin brothers...boys can get rough. I also want him to have the most freedom possible. Thank u in advance for any input. I am a licensed practical nurse of ten yr...but it was a total different ball game when I was forced to deal with diabetes t1 constantly at home. I am truely intrigued and touched by everyones stories and life experiences..I have decieded to go back to school for my rn degree and get certified to b a diabetic educators...I know the scare and "WHY ME'S" that everyone experiences when first diagnosed..,and in return would like to help new families ease their worries.....I would like to think all of us dealing with t1 or t2 are like family tryn eagarly to help eachother and fight for funding for a cure!!
