My DD is 16 now and she wanted off the ping. She decided it was such a pain to keep track of site changes, cartridges, and complicated basal regimens. So after 6 years of pumping, we switched to MDI and kept the Dexcom G4. Things have never been better. She is caring for her self so much better, more relaxed, it is easier to leave the house quickly. Her bloodwork is still out, but I am sure her A1c will be better (down from 8.3 I hope). I no longer have to get up in the middle of the night and fill a cartridge because she forgot to tell me it was almost empty. No more worrying about a malfunction while she is overnighting with friends. I am guessing pumping was just getting tedious and we needed a break. Also her belly is the only place that worked for her and it was looking used up! Anyone else have a good experience switching back to MDI? I hate to put aside such expensive technology that we invested so much time on, but it has gone great.
