Last week we had our second checkup since diagnosis. The first was only a couple weeks afterwards so DD's A1C was still up around 12. This time it was 6.6. The doctor seemed happy with that, but said that they actually like kids her age to run a little higher around 7-7.5. With the CGM why wouldn't we want to shoot for a lower A1C? We asked about getting started on the pump and were met with resistence at first. I know they said in the hospital that they usually like to wait a year, but DD really wants to get started on one sooner. She said that DD could still have a honeymoon period and that her A1C already being all the way down to 6.6 makes her thinks that. But then she increased her lantus to 15 to help with the overnight higher numbers we've been seeing. She said her concern was a honeymoon period could reduce her insulin needs too low for a pump. She said something about 3 months out, but I had to remind her that we are actually closer to 6 months post diagnosis. Has anyone experienced a honeymoon period starting so late? I'm almost irritated that she said that in front of DD because DD was hoping to go into a honeymoon phase and not need much insulin for awhile. She had finally sort of let go of that and started dealing with the reality of this being her new way of life. I feel like a honeymoon period at this point would just put us back at sqaure one again down the road. Now DD has it back in her head that she could go into honeymoon which in her mind would make her "normal" again at least for a little while.
