  • Em was on mm for almost 5 years.  Switched to the pod in Dec and loves it.  Said it finally feels good to be half way normal again.  Loves the no tubing.

    I actually think I got up more at night when Jon was on MDI than I ever have since he's been on the pump.  Of course he was newly dx when he was on MDI and was 15 when he was dx but I have rarely got up at night to check him.  When he went on the CGMS I had a good visual to confirm that his nightime basals were right and even though he rarely uses that now I don't check him. On the very rare occasion we think something might be off due to sickness or whatever he will set an alarm or I will wake him up to test but it's definitely less than one night per year that I do that.   I'm sure if he were younger it would be a different story if he wasn't wearing a CGMS.

    Joy - I would have to see how things went if he ever wanted the pump..but I think if I didn't have that lantus cushion I would want to do at least one test at 4  hours.  I guess having a cgm would make it easy to check without waking him.  I love that we all have options and have seemed to find what works best for our kids.
