I don't think Pumping will give ones better HA1c results then MI.
Even for some, it might make HA1c worse.
I'll explain myself - While using MI, people tend to eat regulary at
normal hours (they have to, actully). While being on a pump, eating
regulary is not always the case. Since starting to pump, I've found
myself eating in times is was "not supposed to" with MI, and not
eating at all, when not wanting to.
This makes mylife a whole lot better. But it does makes tight control
harder. While being on MI, I eat at the same time, and usaully the
same food (although I didn't had to, but I just did). This made
result much easier to predict.
Make your dreams come true - don't wake up.
