Re: [IP] Minimed seeming to work better...

That's nice to hear.  When your basals and boluses are stable, then you 
should be able to have pretty much anything that you want.  I have 
discovered that while I can eat most restaurant foods, I have to pass on 
LeAnn Chin's chinese food.  Hers?  Seems to take 3X the normal amount of 
insulin, so you can figure what that costs in weight gain... According 
to my middle grandchild, I am big and fat enough already.
