When did you start the pump and how is it going? I'm gearing up for it.. How are your hypo's? I'm very hypo-unaware and looking into the CGMS as well.

Hi Meghan, I don't know if you received suggestions for your question about the pump or not (Would love some advice as to what I do with it at night ...). I'll put my suggestions anyways. My son wears his pump around his waist with a belt (he's 7 and it's much better this way, there is no dropping of the pump into the toilet ;) ). He used to have one soft waist pouch for the night, but now he just loves his "day" one so much that he does not put the night one anymore. I bought a pouch from another pump maker (which I found made better pouches). Before doing that I looked at both pumps' dimensions (they are almost exactly the same). What I found nice that I have not thought about it before was that this pouch is not fixed at the belt, so, when he sleeps, it's easier for me to just move the pouch and not the whole belt to get to the pump.

I hope you enjoy your pump! Best of luck to you.

Glad to hear that you are liking the pump! You will definitely need some time to get all the settings right. I learned the hard way that the pump is only as good as the settings we put in it (seems obvious, but took me a long time to realize that). So it's worth the time and trouble of doing basal tests, counting carbs, etc.

Do you have the book "Pumping Insulin" by John Walsh. It's a really good summary of what you need to know to use the pump effectively. I highly recommend it!

I got my first A1c under 7 just this year. I think that the advice that I got from this community made the difference! So feel free to ask questions and search old discussions in the Forum. I look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome and you have a golden opportunity to be role model to your students. To get brownie points when asked about your diabetes, say to your students,let's find the answers TOGETHER. It will be a blending of the past and presnt to make a future. Find diabetics in your area and set up a group of equal numbers of youths and seniors, and maybe call your group TOGETHER WE.CAN. Insulin-dependent since 1977, my advice to at least 40.000 people at various health fairs,10 years at CNE,MEMBER OF AADE FOR 8 years, etc is 1,have a diabetic specialist, 2.wear a MEDIC-ALERT identification, 3.have a DIABETIC BUDDY, someone that you are in contact, DAILY, they could save your life. If there are other members of TuDiabetes in your area start up a Canadian connection. my contribution is selling BLUE ROSES to raise funds for www.restorethebantinghomestead.com and help to turn it into a diabetic camp for children. I have worked closely with the BANTING family since 1978. My small group we formed iscalled THE AMIGOS,One of our members is MR.DIABETES,www.DefeatDiabetes, org. check out his WAKE UP AND WALK TOUR, TORONTO,SEPTEMBER 2005 and you will see the AMIGOS. Pease keep in touch because we need to reach a lot of people in our communities that need to meet positive role models.
