Hello my trusty diabetes friends!
My son has been on his t:slim for close to 3 weeks now. The first two were incredible. Such control! Such ease! We were coasting.
This last week has been the opposite. His pump was changed right before he left for school and he came back with blood sugars over 400. He chose to go back to pens for a day and then we friend again. When we tried again, it worked well for 12 hours and something happened in the early morning where it stopped working again. I am sitting here with a kid who has had sugars over 400 for the last 3 hours wondering what the heck we are doing wrong (we took out the pump, corrected, and once again he wants to take a break from the pump).
What the heck are we doing wrong? What is your process when you notice the pump isn’t working right? Like, what do you check first, what do you change, what do you try to redo?
Lost and frustrated,
