[IP] Re: Arguments for the pump

With a pump, I can give myself 0.1 or even 0.5 and points in between when
I'm slightly elevated. It's impossible to measure 0.1u of insulin for an
injection - and not worth the poke! Make out a list of your daily routine
and have your doctor *fake* injections and finger pokes as well as all the
other duties you go through.  A ballpoint could be substituted for syringes
and pokers, but it has to be remembered - AND written down! Have him/her
follow it until your next visit and have doc report to you how he/she did.
Bet it coulnd't be kept up more than a day or two. That may change a mind or
two. (~_^)
