Re: [IP] halloween candy

Ruth - I personally try to stay away from sweets even though I am on a pump.
Are her basal rates normal when she doesn't eat sweets?  If not, maybe they
need to be adjusted and the candy just seems to make the problems worse.  It
may also be that your daughter is not giving enough of a bolus at school.
And, if she eats alot it may be staying in her system too long.  Just a
thought.  I'd ask her doctor about the Minimed Continuous Glucose Sensor.  I
was put on one, but only a few doctors have them right now. Linda
