1) I know I've read (on Juvenation) that some people disconnect when exercising and some people say this is a bad idea, or not taking full advantage of what the pump is for. I don't know the answers. I know very little about pumps. But suppose someone were considering the idea of a pump but has decided that he would never want to wear a pump while in dance class. Does it logistically make sense that a dancer would disconnect for 2-3 hours 4-5 nights a week? Conversely, if you are a dancing pumper (or is it a pumping dancer?), is it really all that inconvenient to be connected to a pump?
Heading off the next question, the classes are in ballet, hip hop, zumba, modern, jazz, tap, teaching creative movement to six year olds, dance theatre, and contact improv. I concede that disconnecting for a 2-hour every-other-week contact improv class would be necessary.
2) Also, am I reading everything right that there ARE some tubeless pumps and there ARE some pumps that work in conjunction with a CGM, but that there are not (so far) any tubeless pumps that also work in conjunction with a CGM?
3) The endo still has us doing 3 a.m. checks on nights that diabetic son has dance (which is 4-5 nights a week). Son is incapable of waking on his own to do this chore, so dad has to do it. Wouldn't a CGM be a more peaceful way to deal with this chore? Wouldn't the endo buy that argument? Would the insurance company?
4) Does anyone compulsively check blood sugar when not at home because going low at home with family seems safe compared to being out in public or at school? Anyone up to talking with me about this offlist?
