My 12 year son has been on the pump for 8 months. His numbers were great on injections with a 6.2 hemoglobin A1c but since he has been on the pump, his numbers have been all over the place and now has a 9.2 A1c. What do you think could be the problem?

My son, on a pump for about a month, is adjusting pretty well, but I am concerned because he is an avid wrestler, and will start practices soon. He is using the MiniMed Silhouette infusion set, and will disconnect for practices and matches. However, what can he do to protect himself from injury with the infusion set?

My nine year old daughter is very interested in going on the pump, and her endocrinologist’s only concern is the fact that she does dance and gymnastics four to five days a week. Her team is worried that she would have a hard time with lows and they told us we can’t take it off for more than an hour at a time. Any suggestions?

My three year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes several months ago. As his honeymoon phases has diminished, insulin just seems to run right through him. Could part of my problem be from using two different brands of insulin? I am very interested in trying pump therapy as soon as possible. How can I find another diabetes team that would support me on this?

I have been on the pump for three years, and my biggest problem is that I get a rash around any tape that I use to keep my infusion set in place. If you or any other pumpers have any suggestions, I would be very grateful.
