Re: [IP] Does anyone ever get this perfectly?
Kathy: I we were to get it perfectly, we wouldn't be diabetics.. my
nurse/educator told me not to look for perfection because I wasn't going to
see it.. we are only trying to mimic our natural body function as best we
can ...carb counting and going on the pump is continues work.. we can only
strive for perfection.. keep working at it..
