Re: [IP] supplies



Like I said YMMV, but I recommend the Pumping Insulin book.  As far as the
blood checks go, do one before you eat, and bolus accordingly (carbs+high
bs), and then do a check 2 hours after eating.  Also write down everything
you eat.  I'll e-mail you an Excel 97 spreadsheet I made for this.

Good luck....

Jeff
