Re: [IP] The Tender Touch



Dianne,
I can't help you with your sets, I'm a newbie too and I use bent needles.
However, I would stop and think about where you are in your menstrual cycle.
If you were doing quite a bit of testing before the pump and can feel
comfortable with a couple of mental jumps, I think that you can make some
conclusions based on the "time before pump".  I have always needed more
insulin as I approach menses, and life hasn't changed in that respect.  The
quantities of insulin have changed drastically,  Since I do change the
basals and am very sensative to insulin 0.1 to 0.2 makes the difference from
350+ to 100.  The basal rates do not all change at the same time, it's
progressive, nor does it always start with the same one.   Me and my
meter.....Thank God for the technology we now have!
Take care (and feel free to email directly)
