even if he is on the pump, he should still be testing daily... my husband has a few... and they all have a memory!! The doctor and nutritionist may need to speak with ihm about the consiquences of not controlling his diabeties. But in the end, he has to make the decision to controll it. My best friend was diagnosed iwth type one in 6th grade, her parents tryed to control it for her and it made her rebell. it almost became a game to see how high she could get her sugar before her parents tested her. She would sneek candy, bread, anything to spike it. At one point they finally handed her the meter and told her that this was her life, her health and it was her responsibility. It took about a year for her to get it through her head, but eventually she did. Same with my husband, I tried to control his diet and check his meter to make sure he was doing it all right... eventually that backfired. I finally got it through...
