Yes Judy, I agree. I was lucky enough to get in to see a "good pump doctor".
After faxing my BG's to him for four weeks he told me to quit counting carbs
and take a 14 unit bolus in the morning, a 10 unit bolus at noon, and a 12
unit bolus at night! I asked his nurse over the phone what I was supposed to
do try and eat to stay up with all the insulin?!!! After I refused to follow
his directions I got a letter from him informing me that "Since he was not
making an impact on my BG's I should find another doctor.. Hot dog! Impact.
. . . All of my BG's were below 50 most of the time.
    I do wonderful with my Family Doctor and my friends on the internet.
