Endo told Grant today that NPH is not working. He has been on it for two years and his A1C is in the low 9's and we see a lot of highs and lows without explanation. She told him it was his choice for MDI or the pump. He was very quiet and would not ask a lot of questions. When she left the room to get something he said to me, "Mom, do you know that the pump can malfunction and it can pump all the insulin in me and I can die?". I told him that I had not heard of that, that I thought the pumps had safety stops in them, but when the doctor came back in, to ask her. He did and she told him that yes indeed that can happen. She said it is rare, but could happen. She said if he felt low he would need to always check the cartridge and see if the insulin had all disbursed. If it did, he needed to go immediately to the ER and get a dextrose drip and be monitored. Ok, I do not know much about pumps (mostly because he has refused before) but is this true? He may be somewhat interested in the OmniPod. Anyone have any input on that?
