Re: [IP] bedwetting



If your endo is  qualified  inpump treatment they will have had about 3
weeks of time testing completed to define the profiles needed for your son,
these profiles are a critical part of pump start up and any good physician
will need to know this data prior to starting, It will then take a few weeks
to adjust the final profile numbers to get him through the night with good
levels, at that time your problem may go away!  you will need to be sure
that the levels at night prior to bed are stable levels , not going up or
going down for this to be controlled.
