Kyra was approved for the omnipod pump by our insurance yesterday, but I am now having second thoughts. Whenever I talk to her about getting the pump and using it she always says that she wants to get it but she will use it when she is bigger. She will not even try on the sample pods. The reason that I am anxious to start using a pump is because she is so sensitive to insulin and we are having a really difficult time controlling her BG during the night. She goes to bed at 9:00 with BG of 110 and 135 and by 2:00 am she will be anywhere between 250 to 375. Her Endo has told me that only way to get this under control is with a pump so that we can program the amount of insulin she is getting at that time of night. This has also begun to happen at school after "nap time" the teachers have told me that if she actually falls asleep her BG will be around 250 when they wake her up. So here is my question do I force her to start using a pump or is this going to be to traumatic for her. I would just go ahead and buy the pump and see what happens but the startup cost will be around $1700.00. I should also mention that for a 4 year old Kyra is very strong willed and determined. I know that since she has made up her mind that she does not want to use the pump at this time that the will be something that I will have to force on her. Any input would be great as I am really at a cross roads here.
