    I was beginning to think I was the only person that still had some lows
that were on the pump. They don't bother me like they used to though. I also
miscalculate on the carbs at times and get above 200 but that too does not
make me feel as bad as it used to. I think the fact that it is all regular.
    I do feel GREAT though and would not give up my pump for nothing short
of a cure!
