My husband and I recently moved from one state to another. Our 5 year old has T1. In Michigan, her endo and the diabetes educators were leaning towards the pump. I very specifically remember one of the educators saying in a class, "The closer you can emulate the pancreas the better it is for the diabetes." This was in reference to the pump and stacking shots. We moved to Illinois and saw an endo in Missouri. She said the the pump isn't proven to be more effective than insulin shot therapy. She wants Ellie to be on meal and shot schedule and she specifically said, "We don't want the two of you trying to be her pancreas."
Someone has to be wrong here. Im at a loss as to what to do. I've never heard anyone say anything negative about the pump except that the line can get crimped. I would love everyone's input.
