Re: [IP] Stomach really the only site?



When I go biking riding for over 10 miles and depending on the outside
temperature I turn off the pump or take it off or out depending on wether or
not I will be changing it that nite. When I ride I sweat very heavily and
put out alot of energy for a long period of time. So it is necessary to stop
the pump all together. I've never experienced any problems but I am always
checking my bs while I'm riding. My problems come the next couple of days.
My bs run very low to a point that I must turn the pump down until the bs
begin to show signs of a gradual increase. I've been riding and pumping
insulin now for over 13 yrs so I know what can happen when I do certain
things.
For the new pumpers out there, welcome, take it slow and you will life your
new life as a needle free diabetic fun and excitment unlimited.
I'll be reading all about you peoples so keep on typing
Ed
