"We now have the Animas pump as well. We are only one week into it and he has been wearing during games/practice. What's a Spibelt? You put it under the chest guard, or pants? What temp basal works for you? I know everyone is different, but we…"

"Thanks for the info, I do have a few more questions: What do you do before the game - or play time? Many times he is high prior to game, we are afraid to bolus, that he'll drop. We did try to increase the basal rate +30% and it did nothing.…"

"What type of case does he put the pump in, and where does he wear it? I think we will do the same with the basal rates, before and after."

"We just got the animus pump. Go into training this week. I like the suggestion of two different bolus for play and not. However, I am still afraid of playing with it. My kid is only 9 almost 10, but it is a really physical sport. Especially my kid.…"

"Our kid just started Hockey as well. His numbers go through the roof when he starts. His excitement and adreneline push him high and we just keep bolusing him for it. He is 6 and we just started pumping 4 weeks ago. We use the Medtronic Miniped and…"

"I read some posts somewhere about a teen hockey player wearing the Omnipod. He tended to wear it toward the back of his arm and would wrap with an elastic sport wrap before strapping on his shoulder pads. One big word of advice... encourage your son…"

Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment.
