RE: [IP] Migraines on the pump

bloodsugar, there is a clear difference."

Ian - I don't know if this'll help since you state your headache is not caused
by low blood sugar.  But , I started getting migraines not when I went on the
pump, but when I got my BG under better control.  According to my Endo at the
time, one migraine trigger is a sudden change in BG levels, and I find I can
get the migraines when I go from a very high to very low BG (about 250 to 50).
You may just want to review your BG levels on the days that you have migraines
and see if you notice a pattern.
