EllasMom replied to NatalieHodge's discussion 'Dex decisions??' in the group Dexcom Users
"For us, it lags behind a lot when hypo - don't use it as a way to see if BGs are coming up because you will over treat! Also lags when BGs are rising/falling rapidly but other than that it is awesome. Ella's sick right now and it has…"

"Lisa, we have had incredible results after upgrading to the G4. I hated the 7 & am in love with the G4. Our experience is that it is well worth the upgrade fee."

"Oddly enough, my non-D 2 year old quit sleeping through the night right around the time of big sister Ella's dx. My solution? They both sleep in bed with me. A momma's gotta do what a momma's gotta do to get some sleep!"

EllasMom replied to Adjomom's discussion 'Toddler ripping off Pod every day' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I feel for you. My 7 year old plays really hard sometimes and will knock hers off, but I can't imagine trying to explain to a little one to not rip it off! We have found the following works: 1. Arm/Leg Bands to cover up the pod - you can get…"

aimeeh2oski replied to EllasMom's discussion 'Bolus Pain?' in the group OmniPod Users
"So do you do all that to prevent a rash, keep the pod sticking to her, or both? I haven't used anything between her skin and the adhesive, but I'm using tape or a bandage, plus an arm band over the pod to keep it on. Nexcare waterproof…"

Ro1987 replied to EllasMom's discussion 'Bolus Pain?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I recognized that. I don't what it causes. But it's not always. Let's just say when I feel it, it feels like a 'sharp pain'. But when I feel it, then I have it for the rest of the pod. O and I'm using NovoRapid."

EllasMom replied to EllasMom's discussion 'Bolus Pain?' in the group OmniPod Users
"We had issues with the cannula coming out when she wore it on her bootie. Since we've gone to the legs/arms, we hardly have any issues. But like I said above, we have to glue the pod on her with an arsenal of wipes & adhesives. Then once…"

"Hi Krissy, My daughter will be 4 in a couple of weeks and we just started on the pump 4 weeks ago. She's never complained of pain with a bolus, but I was just curious what Ella's experience has been with the pod so far. We have had no luck…"
