ahe05a replied to SANTI's discussion 'SCARY LOW EVENT - SYNTHOMS?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son was DX'd at 18 months also (He's 9 now). We've had bad lows where we have to use glucagon. When he was really little, we gave him glucagon mini doses -- mixed the glucagon as usual, but then used a regular insulin syringe to…"

ahe05a replied to MikeU's discussion 'Rx for every 3 days or 2 days for 90-day supply?' in the group OmniPod Users
"We just had to change my daughter's rx to one every 2 days because she just wasn't making it 3. It was actually really easy for us -- no problems with the insurance or the distributor. We get ours from Liberty medical."

ahe05a commented on Penny R.'s group 'parents of kids with Type 1'
"My 11 year old just started her period too. Our Endo says that we will need to increase by increments of 10% each time to figure out how much extra insulin she will need. Also now because of puberty, she is requiring a huge amount of insulin anyway.…"

ahe05a replied to Lisa Stratton's discussion 'Sleep!!!' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I have 3 kids and 2 are T1. We keep a couple of blankets and a pillow next to our bed so that when they can't sleep or are having wacky BGs they are in the room with us so we can check easily and so they don't feel alone. It works really…"

ahe05a replied to Barney Swank's discussion 'Basal Rates' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have 2 kiddos on the pod, and neither one uses Lantus. (Unless there is a hardware problem - very rare). We do 3 different kinds of settings: Basal, Insulin to carb ratio, and correction factor. They get the basal rate and then at meals we use the…"

ahe05a replied to Barney Swank's discussion 'Basal Rates' in the group OmniPod Users
"Divide the total of your long acting insulin by 24 and use the resulting number as a place to start the basal per hour rate. For example my daughter takes 30 units of Lantus (when we use MDI) so we started her basal at 1.25 per hour. We tweak it as…"

"Our Endo said that most prefer Novolog for the pump because Humalog is a little bit grainy and can clog up a pump. We use Novo, but have use Humalog in a pinch and it was fine."

ahe05a replied to Clare's discussion 'I kind of wish hypos really affected me more, I might be more diligent to avoid them'
"We've tried everything it seems. His BG is like a roller coaster every day. It's really weird because sometimes he reacts to insulin and sometimes not. He's on the OmniPod and it has helped his control a little. When he was on Lantus…"
