So my DD has been insisting on going back to shots. She says it is because she wants better control and taking shots will force her not to snack in between meals unless medically necessary. In reality I think she is just on pump burn out. She is 12 and in 6th grade and hates having anything obvious that makes her different. Wearing a pump makes her stand out (she doesn't realize that kids her age are too busy worrying that they are different to notice that others are different.) Anyway - after a 3 month battle she won and has disconected her pump. The 10 Units of Lantus (I know that is lite compaired to many) was had to give not knowing how it will effect her and also because I am a basal lady - I adjust basals frequently and often set temp basals - the loss of the control will ikely eat me alive. Another ocd type love i have with the pump is the IOB feature. For example if my dd eats and afternoon snack and boluses for it then an hour later wants to go on long bike ride I will ask her to test, if her number is within range I will ask her what her IOB is so I can calculate where she will be in an hour. Based on IOB I may ask her to eat another small snack and not dose for it. With shots I feel lost. No more IOB info. I know there is a formula to figure out IOB and I would love for someone to share it with me BUT I would also like to know if anyone is aware of an application that does all the same math that the pump does. If so I can have her use the application as a log book and hopefully she will have the benefits of the pump computer while being untethered. Thoughts??
