Well Tim has had d for three years now and two of those years the endo has been suggesting the pump. Tim has wanted nothing to do with it up until about a month ago. For the last few weeks he has been asking how long will it take to get it. He and I both have been nervous, but anxious about him starting the pump. Today we got the call from Minimed telling us the insurance denied the pump and the reason for it was that his A1C's have not been continually lower than what they feel for it to be medically necessary to wear the pump. I feel like we are being punished for doing our best to try to control his D. His last was 6.? Good A1C, but those were the few months he was having trouble with the Lantus and experiencing 40 range lows due to the peaks the Lantus is having. He is still experiencing the peaks, although not as low, because I have been putting off upping his lantus to where it should be to avoid those 40 lows assuming the pump would be coming and things would get better. The next step is for the endo to send in an appeal. I'm tired, frustrated with D right now and WANT that pump for my boy.
