Re: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V3 #304

Michaele and Brooke -

I was also on NPH for 35 years, but my Doc (at Johns Hopkins) told me quit
the NPH when you go on the pump.  Like others on this web site, I would't
tell you what to do - but the PATIENT is 100% of the fix!!!  Try it for one
day.  How can you begin to compensate for the NPH while you're using Humilog
too?  Are there certain times that her bs goes high or low on a
regular/predictable schedule?  You can figure this out!  Write down her
blood sugars and (AND!) what she eats and at what times!  I think (just my
humble opinion, based on experience) you should discard the NPH.  Donn't be
dangerous  - be careful!

>>Susan K,
>>Yes, we have used Humalog occasionally, but only if she is over
>>500 because 1/2 unit of Humalog will drop her blood sugar by 400
>>points in only 30 minutes....I guess because she is so small.  She

>>humalog yet...her pedi endo seems content to let her sugars run
>>high rather than risk a low due to her age.  I hate that she usually
>>runs 300's but she is just not consistant...they are also mixed with
>>100's so I'm afraid to adjust her NPH.  I've only been at this for
