Re: [IP] Travel and unexpected snafus



I thought albuteral was a bronchodilator not a steroid?
(I have asthma and use beclovent (steroid) and albuterol (bronchodilator)
plus am on oral prednisone for lupus and sjogren's and a bunch of meds for
epilepsy and 2 meds which are disease modification meds. I had to chance my
basals and also the boluses I use for the insulin to carb ratio.  Have you
made tempoary changes on your pump?
