Re: [IP] how long does it take

Timmy - My 8 yo daughter has been pumping 2 weeks today, and we are still
fine tuning things. The first few days were more difficult - her endo wanted
her on regular, but she'd been using Humalog since it came out. After two
days of regular, we switched her to humalog and found it much easier to deal
with setting basals and boluses because of the fast acting nature of the
insulin and our already intact knowledge of how her body is likely to react
to humalog. Don't get discouraged - things will level out fairly quickly,
and you can iron out the major rough spots from there.  Good luck!
