Celeste replied to Mary's discussion 'Pump sites not infusing after 36 hours?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I find during growth spurts we have to up up up the basal rates(and I:C ratios) - then we will have about 2 weeks of good numbers then we get lows and have to lower the insulin - then she ends up close to where she was to start."

Lipoatrophy

My six year old is on a pump and she is having trouble with lipoatrophy - we had stopped using her upper butt area because of it 2 years ago and the fat has not returned - now we are seeing it in her arms and legs (the sites we are currently using) - does anyone have any advice for this? The doctor and diabetes educator say it will get better as she grows and gets more fat - has anyone seen that happen?CelesteSee More

Celeste replied to MLH's discussion 'Keeping Omnipod adhered to skin' in the group OmniPod Users
"We do this too - it is the only tape that allows my daughter to get the three days out of the pods - I find in the winter when I can get lazy about it(less water and sweating) that she will get more kinks if we don't tape it too (I guess the…"
