Re:Re: [IP] Saline?



I started pumping 8 days ago with the MM 508 and started right away on
humalog.  The subject of saline never came up.  The only reservation I
expressed was a squeamishness about insertions.  Thanks to this IP list, I
expressed confidence about the basics of carb counting and all the vocabulary.
I wouldn't want saline but YMMV.

<I just starting pumping yesterday. I have been monitoring this list for a
couple of weeks and I have a question. Everyone talks about starting on
saline
a week or so before going on insulin in their pump. When I mentioned this to
my CDE she had never heard of this. I was just wondering what area this
practice takes place? Was just wondering.>

I went on it w/o insurance and all, and wanted to wear it for a few days
getting the full experiance.  The doc who was helping me said I really would
be OK starting on insulin as I was conservative in my initial plans at
startup, but I couldn't afford an ER if I needed one.  I didn't and all
worked
out well.
