Re: [IPk] New baby

I found that the times I took  a careful note of foods such as pasta or
amount of time on the trampoline was very helpful when the dust settled on
the CGMS and I sat with the graph myself. We too were astounded that grace
was 80% out of range but three of her scheduled tests would have been in
range so her book was looking fine at the time. I'm hoping to do a CGMS to
set basals again but fir me the pump has given me a window into that
dreadful picture of the graph. Grace is so happy I know intuitively that her
numbers are fine again. Grace's A1c was 8.9% on the CGMS and three months
later with five weeks pumping Grace was 6.4%.
We found that the insertion for the CGMS was very difficult. The nurse was
"checking" suitability for pumping but now I would insist on using the cream
beforehand. Other parents have said they had no bother though. It seems to
be 50/50.
Best of luck
