Re: [IP] ANSWERING YOUR PUMP QUESTION



as all diabetics with a pump are required to cary alternative insulin to
avoid probles , here is what I do , I carry with me a 300 ml pen of humalog
, If I do not need it to use in place of the pump, it can fill the syringe
for the next change, it becomes a diferent way to cary your supplies.
