Checking in on your son. I hope things are going well for him and the rest of the family. i do nto know how old he is, but I saw kids at school as young as first grade with a pump and they did very well. Call his school nurse and talk to them about kids at school who use one.
Cheri, I have had T1 since I was 12 and it's been 31 years for me. Things were.... bad... in the '70s for us. I gave myself shots for 29 years and I have had my MM 722 for 2 years. I took mine to China and to Ireland, I can't tell you how many times I have fell on it while mountain biking, or rolled over on it. I was pushed into a lake once too. Recently it got caught in my fall protection harness while I was on a 45 foot telescoping lift at a construction site. My observation is this: It's one tough pump. =) Good luck and I hope you and your son are fine! PS Diabetes never, ever held me back!
Actually I've been on the pump for just over three months now. LOVE IT!!! I'm still tweaking the adjustments but my A1C has never been this low in 15 years. For a long time it was a financial issue with my parents and then I just didn't want to do it. Now that I'm on my own with good insurance I decided to jump. It's paid off so far! Any pump specific questions?
