I'm going to try setting the alarm to see if I can't get it to wake me up before my sugar does. Sounds like that might make things easier.
I'm glad the pump has worked so well for your son. My doctor and I have spoken once or twice about the pump, and his feeling is that if you don't mind shots, and have managed to get pretty tight control of your blood sugar, then you don't really gain anything from the pump.
Having some first hand knowledge, how do you feel about this?
I'm 25, and was just diagnosed 2 years ago. It's been a bit of a steep learning curve--especially since I started Aikido, with different schedules and activity levels different days of the week.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write!!
