Our son was DX 9-30-2011 at the age of 14. He started his new insulin pump a little over a month ago and at his age he is doing wonderful with it. He is now 16 almost 17. As a parent of a older child we don't want to bother them too much or drive them crazy asking them questions about their blood sugars,have you eaten,have you taken insulin,do you need to change your infusion site or how are you feeling. Those questions drive my son crazy! He says to us mom and dad I've got this. He says I know what I'm doing and I'm taking care of my diabetes the way I should. He is a good kid and wants no problems with his health. My question for other parents is:::: Do you always ask questions everyday to make sure they are doing ok with blood sugars and etc? As a parent do I keep asking him questions everyday about his blood sugars and etc????? He has the new Tslim insulin pump and loves it!!!
