Re: [IP] Re: School nurse: Help!



The reason diabetics have to take long acting insulin
like nph, ultralente, etc is because their bs rises
with or without food.  With a pump you only get short
acting insulin so you have to take a small amount of
it often to keep bs down.  This is the basal rate.
