Re: [IP] Re: drastic BG changes in short time

HI Janice,

  This is Sylvia, mom to Joshua.  You apparently lucked out by having your 
son go through a growth spurt shortly after starting his pump.  Josh, age 
9.5, just went through one erlier this summer too.  It can be a never ending 
thing with the kids so you need to watch out.  Also, be aware that when 
school starts and the schedule changes his basals may need to actually go 
down again.  But once you have his daily pattern, these increase/decreases 
are a breeze.  Check out the chapter in PI about dealing with growth spurts 
and hormones.

Good Luck!
mom to Joshua
