DS12 tests wherever he is also. He pumps but when we have had pump failures, he can inject through his shirt with no problem. he is a swimmer and also injects through his suit when the need arises.

Trust me, very few people will ever pay attention. DS has been T1D for 10 years now and no one even bats an eye.

I have heard of people just injecting right through their clothes...What if you are wearing jeans....wouldn't the needle bend? Even though I have been injecting for several years...I have only taken two shots per day...once in the morning and once in the evening...which made it a lot easier...Now that I am on the sliding scale...there are issues of testing and taking a shot several times a day...

We have used both pens and syringes. Pen needles are shorter. The biggest difference is that you don't have to draw up from a vial.

My twelve yr old dd has type 1 and was diagnosed at age five. She's been pumping most of the time.

She literally tests wherever she is. When we go out to eat she tests at the table. Used to inject there also. It's really easy. Now once at WDW we did go to the restroom to use the little waiting area before you entered the restroom area. Only because it was the Crystal Palace and it was insanely busy and crowded and it just seemed easier to do it someplace where there was less of a chance of being jostled.

On a regular basis she checks all sorts of fun places. The school bus, grocery store aisles, even the checkout lane at Home Depot. I was paying and she felt low. She told me and before I could say a word she whipped out her meter case, set it on the checkout and started testing lol.
