My daughter, aged 14, will be going to camp with a Medtronic Minimed pump for the first time. She's been to camp before, but this is her first year with the pump. She wants to know how careful she needs to be with her pump around water. She knows to remove it for swimming, but what about water fights? what about water rides at amusement parks?
Any other advice would be appreciated as well!
Thanks!Posted 12 months ago #
my daughter was diagnosed a year ago when she was 1 1/2
were trying to keep her # good but every time she eats she shoots up to 250 300
is that normal
if any of you have a young kid with D can you give me some advice on how it works
too young for D- Firstly, welcome aboard. Sorry that you have to join but you're definitely in the right place!
When you say every time she eats she shoots up, What do you mean? Is the 250-300 2 hours after eating or 4 hours? Does it come down on its own or do you need to do a correction bolus?
It would be normal for her numbers to go up within 2 or 3 hours of a meal but it should come down on its own if a bolus was given to cover the carbs...give us some more details so we can be more helpful :)
too young for D -"my daughter was diagnosed a year ago when she was 1 1/2"
She probably was born with it.
"were trying to keep her # good but every time she eats she shoots up to 250 300
is that normal"
No, of course not. How is she getting the insulin?
If it's an injection given by you -you might have to bolus before eating. (Some call this pre-bolus.)
I hope you take her to a pediatric endo. You should discuss this with her/him ASAP.
hi sorry dint give good details
when she eat she ,she goes up but she comes down 2 3 hours after
i wanted to know how high is normal
i spoke to one of my freinds who has D and he said when he hits 180 he dont feel good
my daugher goes to 250 300
we have a pump we use the omnipod and navigater
too young for D -"hi sorry dint give good details"
You still haven't explained anything!
"when she eat she ,she goes up but she comes down 2 3 hours after
i wanted to know how high is normal
my daugher goes to 250 300

This is from the ADA:
"Plasma blood glucose goal range(mg/dl)
Toddlers & preschoolers(0–6 years):
Before meals | Bedtime/overnight
100–180 | 110–200 | A1c: 8.5%•
Rationale: - Vulnerability to hypoglycemia• Insulin sensitivity• Unpredictability in dietary intake and physical activity•
A lower goal (8.0%) is reasonable if it can be achieved without excessive hypoglycemia."
You didn't say when you're testing. The ADA says to test before meals and at bedtime & overnite. So if at these times you're getting 250/300 - you're over the limit.
Even if you've been testing at the wrong times -you can still find out what her glucose status is by testing her A1c. It shouldn't be higher than 8.5%. See chart above.
If your kid's A1c is too high, your Doc can lower this by having the pump give boluses along with basals. He/she might be doing this already. You haven't said anything about the insulin, besides that she is on a pump.
Either way, first test properly, and if the glucose or A1c is higher than what it's supposed to be - then see your Pediatric Endo for how to lower it. I hope you have one and don't use your PCP/Pediatrician for this.
hi, it has been a long time since the last post. i just want to touch base ans say that we are surviving here. the kids are older and now the big issue is them eating and later we find out when the number on the screen is ...Posted 2 weeks ago #
Thanks dx3 for bumping us up... all is good here. I am BH good. I'm actually expecting in October IyH. It's very hard on the blood sugars at this point, even though I know I am doing all I can and doing all the right things, the hormones are messing everything up!! I am very insulin resistant in the mornings and no matter what I do after breakfast I am always high!! I give insulin first thing in the morning and wait an HOUR before eating and it doesn't help ;( my doctor said its not my fault and I should just continue to work as hard as I am but its an icky feeling to be in such good control (my last a1c before pregnancy was 5.8!!!!) and now to just "lose" it is hard to deal with. but BH its for a good reason ;)Posted 2 weeks ago #
