Re: [IP] SQUARE WAVE and HUMALOG ?
I don't know if I have
gastroperises or not, but I have used the square wave bolus since I have had the
pump(11/97). I used to experience lows within 2 hours after eating, to correct
this I started taking half while eating and the other half in a square wave
bolus that lasts one hour. This usually gives me pretty good
Anyone else do this?
Is anyone else using MiniMeds' square wave bolus feature
I have gastroperisis (stomach nerve damage) which causes
my food to be absorbed at almost twice as long as normal. I find that
Humalog reacts too fast, so I deliver my bolus over a 90 minute
period, unless I'm having a lot of simple sugars in my meal, then I will
deliver part of my bolus immediately, and the rest over the 90
I have noted that some pumpers are mixing humalog/reg
etc...is this the way to go, and are these people doing it for similar
reasons as mine?
I would like to here any other suggestions for dealing
with my situation.
