"Hi Linda, can pretty much echo your own story. Our 14yo daughter has grown a lot in the past year and her HbA1C has taken a hit too. Seems she's always been volatile but certainly more so in the past year despite even greater efforts at…"

jake42 replied to Blondie's discussion 'Jumping Through The Hoops To Get A Pump' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Hi, just our experience but I don't think atypical. In our country pumps are state-offered and expensive (at least in the sense that there is limited resources allocated to the delivery of pumps). As such, we found that there was immense…"

"Jen, my daughter (12yo) has been using Medtronic Paradigm Veo with Mio infusion sets for over a year now. We generally get a good 2 days from each set with more often than not significant deterioration in infusion at 2.5 days. If we forget…"

"Just my 2c on this. Our little one with HbA1C of >9% five months ago. Now 7.2%. We're working just as hard, perhaps harder given all the options a pump brings. But it's great to finally get some traction on this disease. And our little…"
