RE: [IP] update and question



I agree with the flexibility issue.  I once considered using a cheaper
insulin for basals at times.  What I can't do is go back to shooting.  I
really love not having to face the needles and the problem of storage and
disposal, let alone taking the shots.  And at least for a little while
there's some consistency in absorption rate and such.

Isn't this counter productive to the freedom, convience etc offered by a
pump?

Why would it be counterproductive? Isn't life about choices and if I choose
to inject a bolus to stretch out the timing in my pump's reservoir at a
particular time, what diff does it make as long as the insulin gets inside
me by my chosen method? As was stated in the original post, we learn tricks
along the way. Definitely, YMMV! (~_^)
