I hope you didn't read my blog title and think that I was going to give all these great tips on how to manage the pump and diabetes in your child during the summer months and during summer vacation.
Because I'm not.
I need your help!!!!
We have been pumping for 3 months (already!). We are slowly learning as we go, however this will be our first summer.
Some of you may know that yesterday was a holiday in Canada (Victoria Day) and hence a long weekend.
It may have snowed in Gander, but it was sunny and 18C+ in my hometown.
I was battling lows all weekend.
had her pump disconnected, had it on 25% basals, gave extra food.
Still went low.
Does anyone have any advise or suggestions on what they do with their kids? What about during summer vacation? What works for you? What hasn't worked?
As always, I realize you guys are parents like me, and for the most part, not medical professionals. I will of course, discuss any changes with my CDE.
