Hi! I'm new here and have no idea if I'm doing this right. I'm looking for some advice from parents of Type 1 kids in grade school. My first grader son is on an insulin pump and was diagnosed 2 years ago. Since starting full-day school in September, he has been visiting the school nurse way too many times a day. He must go to be checked before recess and lunch and if he has gym--but he also goes if he feels slightly hungry, has "tummy aches" (which I think are suspicious), his site itches, he has a bump on his leg, he's tired, etc. The nurse checks his BG, and although he is high at times, he is never low and the visits are rarely warranted. We never need to check him as much on the weekend as he is checked at school. I obviously can't forbid him to go to the nurse and have tried to tell him how important it is to tell the truth. I know he is abusing his need to visit the nurse and he is missing way too much class time. Anyone else gone through this? Were you able to stop it---and how??? Thanks!
