Re: [IP] Basal rates question

The whole point of the pump is to offer more flexability than this CDE seems
to understand....While fasting is harder on Multiple Daily Injections, it is
easier to do on the pump and since it's sometimes necessary to reset your
basals, fasting is more "do-able" than before and is actually recommended by
many endos and CDEs. They may be just a bit concerned because of your
newness to the pump, but on a weekend or day when you can test often, why
not 'miss' breakfast, and test every hour if you're at 100, every 2 hours if
you're at say 120? If you 'bottom out' then you'll know the basals for that
time (usually the preceeding hour) need to be adjusted.
    Your schedule is a lot like mine sometimes, and having a coorectly set
basal should ease the hypoglycemia troubles.  Have a word with the pump
trainer and your CDE again.
