Okay, so I am going to turn to the real experts.....the CWD folks! Our endo's office is out of ideas of how to help us. Lindsay, age 8, started on the pump (Medtronic) this past June.....the last time we went for our endo appt. was 9-30-08 and her A1C was 7.9. However, we were still at the time having three day cycles in there with really high numbers, obviously telling us that we are having "site/absorption" issues so the endo told us to try the Silhouette site (we were using Quick Sets). Since then, we've had a bad month with just numbers out of range more than in range, even with increasing basals/ bolus. The silhouette was no different. We use the stomach a good bit and so this past weekend I put the site in her behind/butt and had great numbers for a day and a half, even a couple of lows, then all of a sudden at school she shot up in the 500s (no ketones). When she got home I changed her site, she dropped down to 120 within an hour and a half. Then had great numbers again on Wednesday, then yesterday stayed in the 300 and 400s at school all day again with no ketones. So changed site again last night and dropped down to range within a couple of hours. This is a pretty predictable pattern on her now....endo said today that the pump just might not help her and we might have to go back to shots. NOT going to happen! Anyway, anyone have any ideas/ advice? We are beyond the frustrated point--had a meeting with her teacher yesterday and her grades are going downhill. I truly feel like I am going to have a nervous breakdown.....I don't know that I have laughed in a month.
