So my daughter is 14 and since we’re in Canada and behind the times, we just received notification that we can upgrade my daughter’s t-slim X2 to use Control-Iq. We are currently using the Basal-Iq which has been great, but I know that once we update to Control-Iq we can’t go back.
So some things about my daughter - her A1C runs pretty high, around 8.2 (which actually is the pediatric national average in Canada) and she doesn’t have the best control, she forgets to bolus at least once a day. She is also active which makes her go low. So she is up and down like a yo-yo,
So I should be super excited to add this feature, but then I worry that since she can’t remember to bolus, will she remember to tell her pump she is active? And if she forgets and the pump corrects her too much, she could end up with some bad lows.
At least she feels her lows and maybe once or twice of forgetting she would manage to remember, but still.
