Re: [IP] re: basal and skipping meals

Hi Faith

what made you decide to go to the pump over the insulin shot method? Any key
benefits to sugar control in your a1c averages? I have no problem with
insulin shots or needles and am wondering, hey, if I can get my a1c 5.0 to
5.4 with shots, why use a pump? So, please explain why you opted to go on a
pump. thanks.
