RE: [IP] RE:Symlin and dual wave on pump (Judy)


I wouldn't recommend such a big drop in your basal besides you should probably
only change one thing at a time.

Thank you, Judy

I will try it your way to see if it helps.
I am doing this because even though I am pretty confident that I dose
correctly for carbs, I still have wild highs a couple hours after
eating, sometimes going up into the 400's.
I am starting off by using the SymlinPen60, so am going to start at
the lowest dose (which is 15) and every few days go to the next dose
up until I am getting 60.
It's going to be a slow process and I sure hope it works
I am not sure what D.P. means unless you mean dawn phenomenon.
My basal rate is set currently to 1.2 and I am thinking of setting it
down to .8.
It sure would be great to get some good control and need smaller
amounts of insulin so that I could lose weight easier.
