Hope everyone is doing well. I don’t post often, but read every O-Pod post and do chime in when I have advice or input. Now I have a question of my own.
My son has been using the O-Pod since January. We love it and would not change to another pump for any reason (that I can forsee). He is 3 1/2 and very active, and eats all the time. He typically eats Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack, DInner and Bedtime snack. Many of his snacks are carb based (fruit, chips, etc.) The frequency of the carb intake is such, that it is at times difficult to see normal BG readings during the day. He had a good A1C at his last check-up (which was the first since starting the O-Pod), but is often over 300 2 to 3 to 4 hours after eating. I am wondering if I need to increase I/C ratio, basal, etc. (Don’t wory, I am not going to rush and make changes based on responses here. We would, of course, involve our CDE and Endo first.)
Thanks for your time, input and support.

How long does it take you (or your loved one) to come back down to normal BG readings after a meal or snack?
