Re: [IPk] Increase in HBAIc since commening on pump



I just wanted to say that I am sorry to hear that your son had this problem.
It sounds horrendous.  Sasha has had fits due to low blood sugar and it is
very scary but she has never had this sort of injury yet.  She just screams
the house down.  But this does sound like a fit though.  Sasha is not
pumping at the present so I cannot help with that aspect.  I hope you find a
solution quickly.

You obviously need to speak to your D team or pump manufactures as soon as
poss.
