Hmmm... Lily was (at 11) and I believe still is the youngest pump
patient in Dr. Prendergast's practice. He currently has over 500 pump
patients. They have probably gathered more information on adolescent
pumping requirements from us than the other way around.
Lily and I currently do all the basal rate/ratio/etc.. adjustments
ourselves. I intended to put a HOWTO for all this on the website soon.
Every few months, Lily and I will re-run her basal rate requirements --
but only if she starts to get out of whack. It's not to hard and makes
life much easier when meal, sleep, exercise patterns are not fixed.
