From Wheaton, Illinois, USA:
What do you think about putting a 5 year old on the pump? For three years we have been getting blood glucoses all over the map and are particularly concerned about night-time lows. We track and monitor closely. How young do you see children go on the pump?
I would carefully consider all the options with your diabetes team.
P.S.: Erratic blood sugars are not uncommon in this age group especially if you are "chasing" the high sugars with extra insulin.
