Re: [IP] Children pumpers and snowskiing


  Sounds like this might be a trial and error situation but it will be a good 
learning situation for you too, especially Jake.  If skiing is something he 
will be doing in the future then he really should experiment to see what will 
work for him best.  If he disconnects and skiis he will want to stop every 
once in awhile and check BGs, reconnect and bolus if necessary.  Some people 
say that they will bolus for missed basal, say for an hour, disconnect and go 
because the activity will help keep them stable.  I don't know how Jake 
reacts to exercise in the cold but the cold will excellerate the burning of 
calories so he will want to watch out for this.  

Good luck!  Will want to hear all about your trip afterwards and how things
