Re: [IP] low basal rate

    It maybe your doctor and CDE are thinking about tubing from many years
ago. When I started 20yrs ago the tubing & insulin did clog at times but
that change  once the new insulin and tubing  came along. For the last
15yrs. at times I have ran 0.0 and 0.1 rates for anywhere from 3hours to 5
hrs. with no problems with pump jamming. I was told that it is best if I can
kept insulin flowing  even at 0.1 because it take time for the insulin to
work but not because of the pump.
                                                 Remember to SMILE AND BE
