"I see the t:slim is IPX7 (watertight), so the biggest issue is whether or not you can place the infusion set where it won't get ripped out during the event. Maybe get some opsite or tegaderm to put a covering over the infusion site and offer…"

"I would take the pump off just before the start and do a small bolus. 24 hour basal divided by 24 x 2. Then do the same amount via pen every two hours. For me, that would be 2.5 units every two hours. Assistant to help with shots and bgs. Shoot for…"

I Need A FICTIONAL book on Diabetes for a High School Sophomore Project Any Ideas?

Posted on September 27, 2013 at 4:16pm 10 Comments

I want to do a project on the topic of Insulin Dependent Diabetes but in following the rubric for the class I am required to also include a fictional book in my review of literature. The overall project is Problems in America & I chose Insulin Dependent Diabetes because its of interest to me & I want other people to also learn from me. Unfortunately, I can teach my teachers but first I need a fictional book. I have plenty of non-fictional books of course.
Please Respond :)

Wondering other parents experience with having their endo rx a cgm for a pediatric client, i.e.: my 14 year old son

Posted on June 6, 2013 at 11:39am 1 Comment

I would like some input so to better prepare my request for a cgm. I understand cgms are not routinely rx'ed if <18 years old. I understand that if Jake had hypoglycemic episodes esp one(s) that required medical or another party interaction for his welfare, it would be less of an issue for him to be rx'ed a cgm.
