[IP] Was south beach now insulin intake



Okay please bare in mind we are not pumping yet but will be soon.
Does every one on a pump use strictly carb/insulin ratio for how much
insulin to take?
Why or how could you get away with no insulin for a meal?
As you get older does it meal that as someone with diabetes you can eat no
carb meals
