[IP] symlin for type 1

I think I asked this question before but can't find any new information. Are
any of you type 1's now taking symlin? I started about 3 weeks ago and find
it really does cut down the peaks after eating. The rise in the BG comes 2
hours after eating but this is easy to control with the pump and the CGMS. I
am only using it for lunch and dinner, and only 30 mcg. I don't think I will
go higher but I hear the effect wears off. It is interesting that much was
written about symlin when it first got approved in 2005, but now I cannot
find any new users or really new information. I am not overweight and I have
a reasonable Hba1c-6.6, so my doctor didn't want to prescribe symlin, but I
feel that if this is something our bodies don't make anymore why shouldn't
we use it.
