I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Melissa and my daughter Morgan was diagnosed in October 2003 with Type 1. We pumped for a while, but now we're back on injections. ( which she is really growing tired of). The endo said we could go back to the pump if her A1C was good in April (it was over 10 in November). Her numbers are improving, so we're are praying to be back on the pump in the spring.

She's going through puberty now and so her sugars are all over the place. Yuck.

Anyway, I look forward to learning from all of you and maybe help the newly diagnosed.

Melissa

I have a 13 year old going through puberty as well. OMG! It's awful. It is really hard managing the numbers. What made you decide to switch back to shots? I have thought about it sometimes, but for the most part the pump is easier. Anyways, welcome to the board! (Oh, by the way, I am Teresa, my son is Austin and he was diagnosed at 6, way back in 1997! I also have a crew of younger kids too, lol.)

She was soooo tired of being attached to the pump. She asked the doc if she could go back to shots and she agreed. Now she regrets it.

This will the last switch....I'll have to retrain myself on using the pump.

Hi and welcome! I am Renee. I am 25 and was diagnosed with type 1 at age 2. I have never used the pump so I don't know much about it. Good luck on getting the A1C lower and getting back on the pump!!

Well, we're on the Novolog pen now, and to be honest, I think I like pumping better. Always having insulin "With you" is a lot easier. I like the idea of her having insulin coming in constantly. We've seemed to have a lot more highs since we're back on injections. This puberty thing isnt helping either. She hates changing sets. I heard that they need to be changed every other day now instead of every three. If and when we go back to pumping, I need to work with her on changing her sites to somewhere other than her belly. It's really "thick" from scarring.

Her A1C was over 10 in November, the endo said if she brings it down, she could go back to pumping.

I agree, the day this all came about is one I'll never forget.

I'd be curious to hear everyone's "diagnosis story" if anyone wants to share. I would be happy to share mine as well.

Peace

Just a suggestion or two if you go back to the pump. They have a pump that holds more insulin. I wish that was the one we had gotten. We have to change sites out really frequently now because Austin goes through so much insulin. If you do switch back to the pump, I will go look up the info to find out what pump it was again.

We have a mini med, but I'm not sure of the insulin capacity.
