It is important to listen you doctor although you may not always agree. We know how tough it is to control your blood sugars, and using a diary is a great help to give your doctor a better idea of what is going on.

Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) The substance of red blood cells that carries oxygen to the cells and sometimes joins with glucose (sugar).
Because the glucose stays attached for the life of the cell (about 4 months), a test to measure hemoglobin A1C shows what the person's average blood glucose level was for that period of time.

and also agrees more on my part than the real doctors. I fluxuate my insulin a lot and the doctors say i should stay at one dose even if i go high cause it might b risky but its sensless not to give more insulin when treated properly
ah well you dont need to respond i get to involved

GARRETT SHIPLEY (nofreedumb@aol.com) from 152.163.207.181
i dont think of diabetes is a limitation. I think if you take care of it you are better off than a lot of people

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:48:30 Eastern US
Pumpgirls (pumpgirls@home.com) from 206.173.208.32
Rita,
It is a combination of all three. It is mostly your own decision, because you are the one who takes care of you.

Pumpgirls (pumpgirls@home.com) from 206.173.208.32
Sarah,
It was pretty easy for some of us, but we still struggle with problems. It is still better than shots!!

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:51:02 Eastern US
Rita (RAMDFC@aol.com) from 205.188.197.46
Don't you still have lows on the pump?? I heard that the range is kept on the low side to begin with.

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:51:13 Eastern US
Stacy (cheerbabysms@aol.com) from 152.163.213.48
I know but i just tell them i like that better

Most of the time it doesn't hurt, but occassionaly we hit a sore spot..

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:52:03 Eastern US
Stacy (cheerbabysms@aol.com) from 152.163.213.48
Carrie yes but with nombing cream it doesnt

Amy from 208.58.193.10
you don't even need numbing creme, i mean you get used to it quick, for little kids maybe, but...

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:52:30 Eastern US
Pumpgirls (pumpgirls@home.com) from 206.173.208.32
Rita,
We still have a "rare" low. Being on the pump has given us all tighter control and as a result, we have fewer lows ( and highs)

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:52:33 Eastern US
Sarah (richard.eaton@sympatico.ca) from 206.172.165.88
So what kind of problems do you have? Are all pumps the same or are there different kinds?

Ellen of KidsRPumping (CamelsRFun@aol.com) from 152.163.201.178
What would you say to a parent who felt her child or teen shouldn't be tethered to a pump all the time and that shots make it easier to not think about the diabetes?

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:53:16 Eastern US

I have a question for every in the chat area.
Can we all answer questions and input if we feel
its right?

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:55:11 Eastern US
Pumpgirls (pumpgirls@home.com) from 206.173.208.32
Ellen,
As pumpgirls, we know our parents worry about us less, because we have better control. The pump is proof of that. It means that our parents don't have to hang around us every minute.

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:55:15 Eastern US
Amy from 208.58.193.10
Stacy, did u say earlier you're in MD? how old are ya?

Mon Nov 8 1999 21:55:39 Eastern US
Rita (RAMDFC@aol.com) from 205.188.197.46
Good question Ellen - but as a parent my question is how do you know if you are pushing something you think is great and will free them up -- but don't know if the enthusiasm is genuine or for mom.

Ellen of KidsRPumping (Zachary 11, dx'd 2/89, pumping 4+ years) from 152.163.201.178
And how do you girls feel about having the pump attached to you 24 hours a day?

My son doesn't mind it AT ALL. He personally wouldn't trade it for all the pokemon cards and n64 cartridges on earth.

Amy from 208.58.193.10
i had to persuade my parents for the pump, but my dad has type 2 and once he saw all the facts about the reduction of the risk for complications, he was 100% for it, luckily my endo was no hassle, thoguht i was a great candidate, I however think he could be more knowledgable of the pump now

Donna - how old is your son?? Colleen is 6 and says yes to the pump but sometimes wonder if she is doing it for me - I quess getting it and then changing her mind would be ok but I would not miss having to give her shots.
