Re: [IP] No pump/bg to low/Barbara



Barbara,
My daughter, Mellicent, who is only two will be starting the pump on the
17th. The doctor chose to put her on the pump because she was having low's
in the night and early morning, and I was told the pump would decrease these
episodes. You need to tell your doctor that you want the pump, and if he
won't give it to you, then switch to someone that will.
