These are most likely low bg seizures not epileptic fits. For more info 
about kids, see the KIDS page of the web site at:


and/or join the Parents of Pumpers mail list. Just drop a note to 
email @ redacted and ask to be added to POP.

Insulin Pumpers web site and mail lists are the largest support forums in 
the world for the users of insulin pumps. There are over 4,600 members, 
including many Dr's, CDE's, RN's, and over 700 kids who started pumping 
at ages 10 days thru teen (or their parents). If a challenge has come up, 
one of these many contributors has surely faced it or something similar 
and can tell how they solve the problem.
