Re: [IP] Question: How important is it to have a pro-pump endo?



.............................................................................
I think that my endo only has about 12 people on the pump right now...
he seems pretty knowledgeable about the pump.. but the CDE in his office is
who I really deal with concerning my pump and she (Theresa) is wonderful!
She's very knowledgeable about the pump, basil rates, carbs to insulin.. etc..
all of it.  She said she even wore a pump with saline as part of her
training.
I'm very comfortable with my endo and CDE... and you should be too.  Do what's
right for you!
Good Luck!
