Re: [IP] living alone


If you are on a Minimed 507 they have an automatic shut off if you have
not  programmed the pump for anything like a bolus or basal change.  You
may want to set your pump for a time that is consistant with your AM
wake up to suspend if you have not programmed your pump and you are too
low to react.  This will allow your BS to rise.

Also you should have some form of sugar close to your bed so you can
treat a reaction quickly without having to get out of bed.
