    Hi my name is Robyn, we are in the UK, mum to Georgia age 10, dx at 2 1/2. We also have 4 other daughters the eldest is 21 and about to give us our first grandchild.:D

    Georgia has been on a spirit pump for 4 years, we recently had problems with the down button so they upgraded us to a Combo but no handset :mad:

    She has trouble recognising hypos and we tend to catch them by the way she is looking/acting ~ and testing more often. She also gets headaches when her blood sugars go above 10. We would feel happier if she had a CGM and have asked the Doctor to apply for one, although he informs us that the chance is very slim, we feel this would give her a better quality of life on a day to day basis.

    This forum is excellent and well done to everyone for sharing, I have learned new things already.

    Hi Robyn,

    Welcome :) Glad you found your way to the board. It's helping me immensely with my 12 yo daughter.

    Hello and welcome Robyn:) I hope that your daughter's doctor is more respectful of your wishes about getting a CGMS for her. Are there other endos in the area that you could switch to? Maybe someone else would be more accommadating and willing to listen to your concerns
