Enough is enough! Tommy has had 2-3 weeks of crazy high blood sugars. I keep increasing the rate, but it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. I am probably not being aggressive enough with the increases, but the lows that come every once in awhile scare me. Maybe he should put on his CGM!!!!
It has been awhile since I last posted. Just an update. Tommy is still on the 522 pump, but hasn't used the CGM part of it for what seems about 2 months. He used to wear it every couple of weeks just to get an idea of how his settings were going. He tried the new minilink transmitter when it came, but didn't seem too interested in it. I haven't pushed it yet.
He is now finishing 6th grade. He is almost a teenager! He is starting to worry about his clothes, his hair, his GIRLFRIEND!! Yikes! He asked me the other day about going back to shots. I told him that we were lucky to have the flexibility of having a CGM because if he ever wanted to go back to shots, all we would have to do is hook him up to the CGM while he was changing to Lantus. But I haven't heard any more about it. I am not going to push it.
I have sometimes bribed him to put in the sensor. It seems that usually once he has it on, it is not a problem. But agreeing to put it on is proving to be a little tricky. I have got to get him to wear it!!! These high blood sugars are scaring me!!!
I'll have to try something.
