911'd? Is that hospital visits due to BG? I can't even imagine. I've never had to bring my son to the hospital because of his numbers. To get those results, though, I check him every 2-3 hrs throughout the day and I only get about 3-4 hrs of sleep per night as I stay awake to check him while he sleeps (he tends to have higher numbers while he sleeps). Literally zombie status sometimes after long nights when his numbers are a little out of control.
We have had his A1c as low as 6.1 on the pump, but his endocrinologist told us to back off and aim more for 6.8-7.2. The main reason for this is because my ex can't seem to understand diabetes and has his numbers in the 300-400's constantly while she has him, and then to counter that I try to maintain 80-110 range when I have him. We have 50/50 custody, so unfortunately my son's numbers fluctuate half the week at a time. :(
I kind of want to get off the pump because I don't like the idea of completely relying on a piece of technology to keep my son healthy. I never have liked the idea, tbh. I'd rather he learns how to do the math and carb counting and all that the real way so he doesn't become dependent on the pump to take care of his diabetes for him, ya know?
