My7y/o son is on minimed paradigm 522 pump for almost 2 months now, so far I like the freedom and control it gives us in managing his bs. But, there are times when his bs would still be in 250-300's two hours after meal., 100 off the target.
My son is really picky and lately I've noticed that he's loosing some weight due to my constant watch of his carb intake. So I started giving him everything he likes to eat and a little of the sugary stuff. I give him more carbs but then I fall short with his boluses. What I do is, check his bg 2 hours after meal and give him another bolus if his bg is more than his target range. My concern right now is his A1c. His last one was 8.8 (when he was on pen shots). I'm really aiming for a normal A1c this time but am a little concern about his after 2 hour meal results. Also, I want him to gain some weight. His 60 lbs. (lean and skinny) I feel that I should let him have everything he wishes to eat without restrictions since his body requires them for growth and development. His next A1c check would be in two weeks and am a little nervous. Aren't I supposed to be in control in managing his bs even more now that he's on a pump? Should I cut down his carb intake just so I have more control of his numbers? Is there anyone out there feeling the same way I do?
