Another post and my daughter's numbers lately have caused me to ask this question. I will ask (again) at our pediatric endocrinology office too.
What are your thoughts on changing your own dosage? My daughter has only been doing the Diabetes thing for 8 1/2 months now, but we now are so good at looking at numbers, watching for patterns, noticing highs and lows, understanding what the insulin does and how bolus and basal rates work... I'm wondering how much I can make decisions myself about how much insulin to give (what settings to put into the pump) and how much I need to rely on the clinic?
I usually get great response from the educators and the endo, but sometimes I feel like I could have made the decision on my own.
Do you make your own decisions and just record them? Or do you always get "permission" to change things?
