Re: [IP] Basal increments

>>>>>Don't worry about how 'often' it gives another squirt of basal.
it's under skin, it then has to slowly seep through the fat before
entering the bloodstream. 1 hour later it's still seeping through. In
the meantime more insulin has come along behind it... so 3 minutes, 6
minutes, 20 minutes - it really makes no difference to the supply of
insulin to the bloodstream.<<<<

Hi John,

Our Disetronic rep said that delivering every 3 minutes helps keep the
insulin from pooling under the skin as much!!  It will have started to
seep into the blood stream before the next "squirt"!  You get a better
absorption that way... so I'm told!  This is hard to say for sure
without having experienced it ourselves yet!
