I have been reading this site for a while now. And i find it very useful and comforting at times (other times a little nervous about some of the things i read that we have fortunately not encountered yet). My son Mark was dx when he turned 9 years old, he is now 10. When he was first dx the pediatrician sent us to a hospital that still believed the best treatment was Humalog and NPH 2x a day and a very rigid diet of a certain amount of carbs at certain times of the day!! My wife and I didn't know any better and assumed that since it was one of the "top" children's hospital in New York we were getting the best treatment. After 5 months of pure HELL we switched to Columbia (excellent docs and nutritionists!!!) and walked out of the consult appointment with a insulin pen and a reasonable treatment plan. One month after that we were on the pump!!! (mini med). That's our story. My question is: I am still checking his BG at around 3 a.m. every night, in addition to checking at around midnight. there have been a few highs and a few lows at those times and I am just nervous. I know we are all nervous about our kids, but i was wondering if I am TOO nervous/obsessive.
Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
