Kaiser Insurance - Wait list for getting child on Pump?

Hi, my son was diagnosed Type 1 this last summer at 10 years old. Fast forward some months and we are thinking he should be on a pump. I mentioned this to our clinic that we work with and I am told there is a wait list of kids who are wanting to go on the pump.

I have no idea of this means. Anyone out there with Kaiser and a Type 1 child? We have an appt next week so I guess we will find out.

To pump or not to pump?

I did really well for the first few months! I had consistent bg levels in the low 100's, etc - and then the Christmas invasion of candied confections hit; wonderful pies, and other such sweetness hit me like a train of temptation bound for diabetes hell.

I injected a lot of insulin - and I gained weight. A lot of the weight… Continue

Super Diabetics

Today's the day...Super Bowl Sunday. Where people in America eat tons of junk food and watch commercials. Oh and there's a football game too. But today, in Colorado Springs, also marks an annual event where 100's of athletes flock to downtown in hopes of winning their own game...The game of running.

The frustrations of getting started on a pump.

I have been diabetic for 9 years. Mostly I was on oral medications, but was recently switched to insulin shots, and quickly have progressed to two kinds of insulin and some scary looking log book pages. About six months ago, I started trying to get myself put on an insulin pump. My family doctor doesn't know much about them, and so he decided to send me to a local endocrinologist. Meanwhile, I researched everything I could get my hands on.

 

After going through the motions of…
