I have a question. We have only been using the pump for a few weeks with our son.
He was getting insulin through his arm by syringe. He is extremely skinny ( 3% for his age). They said the only place he can put the insets is his buttocks ( top part). Well, the problem is... we had great control on the syringes. He was always within target. He could eat 15 minutes after the shot in the arm. Now, his BG are fine if he doesn't eat ( so background insulin level is fine), but every time he eats...he spikes. I know it's not a ratio issue because he does come down to where he should be after 4 hours. I think it's a timing issue. I have had him wait 30 minutes and it still spikes. Anyone else have a skinny frame and needs to put it in this site? Any idea how long we need to wait to eat? The convenience of the pump is being lost by how long we have to wait. He is using the angled inset as well...which is supposed to be better for skinny people. Thanks in advance for any tips/ help you can give. I'm getting frustrated and want to bail and go back to needles! Help!
