Endo visit...The good, the bad, and the ugly

   This morning M had her second visit with her endocrinologist.  I have been concerned because her numbers have been creeping up this summer.  I also wanted to talk about getting her started on the pump before the end of the year.  There is rumor or our insurance at work changing and I am worried about what our coverage will be next year.

   I'll start with the bad.  M's A1C was up.  I knew it would be.  It was not up as bad as I thought it would be though.  Basically my suspicion that her "honeymoon" is over was confirmed.  Some adjustments were made to her breakfast ratio's to see if that helps and she is mainly high before lunch.  Will have to see if that helps tomorrow.

  The good.  We are signed up for pre-pump class on September 26.  This does not guarantee that M will be pumping by the end of the year but it is a step in the right direction.

  Now the ugly.  M's endo was concerned about her scoliosis.  She wasn't sure if it was getting worse.  As this is not her area of expertise she referred us to  pediatric ortho.  Isn't diabetes enough for M to deal with.  Of course I have been up looking at scoliosis treatment.  It is basically bracing or surgery if the curve is bad enough.  Hopefully her's isn't bad enough for this and we will just have to have it checked every 6 months.  If she needs a brace I hope she will handle it as well as she's handling diabetes.
