I wanted to share with you all the before and after numbers (before pump and after pump). My son received his pump yesterday at 2 p.m..
Thought I would share some numbers with you. Before pump and after. The first number was Jan 5 at 7 am and then follow up to the day we got the pump. The last number 275 was the BG on January 21 at 12:30 pm - He got his pump attached at 3:30 p.m. the same day just 3 hours later.
Jan 5, 2010 7 am. 260,212,207,77,303,197,160,271,255,507,232,457,279,
254,232,163,257,426,270,371,232,402,290,199,337,274,189,255, and 275
3:30 pm Jan 21 - BG before we left doctors with pump - 195, then 5:30 pm that same day and so on - 113,136,112,173 (midnight), 87 (3 a.m. - I gave him 4 oz of O.J. because reading was at 3 am.), 142 at 6:45 a.m., 201,113,50 (12:30 that afternoon and then 91 10 minutes later after sugar, 139,113,and 118 as of 7:30 CST tonight.
Called the numbers in from when we first started to document the pump and the basal rate which was set at .085 units per hour were lowered to .08.
Before - one out of 29 within range (77) - no lows -
After - 1 out of 14 - low (50) and two out of 14 high (173 and 201).
11 of 14 within range.
So far so good.
