Re: [IP] MiniMed 508 Questions....Priming, Case and Resevoir and Humalog



Actually Jim...I was told that insulin is a hormone that will make you put
weight on in SOME people...I was told this by several doctors, MM, Animas,
some CDE's....After having so many people tell me this, and seeing my own
reaction to insulin, I tend to believe it. YMMV
