michele replied to Alissa's discussion 'First Birthday since DX what to do about the cake?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Eat the cake! You can get a decent carb estimate from the Calorie King web site or from the Daily Plate website. With my son, we just make sure to test 2 hours after so we can make corrections if needed before his BG gets too out of control."

michele replied to Gina Capone's discussion 'Which insurance covered your CGM'
"We got my son's last year through Aetna, and the CGM 6 months later. To get the pump, all we had to do was meet an A1C target, test 4+ times per day, and log in detail his meals, BG and insulin usage for 3 days. To get the CGM, he had to have…"
