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



I have to disagree on this one!!!!! I have been a diabetic for 27 years with
stable weight until about 4 yrs ago when I had to increase my insulin
intake.  Every doctor has told me as long as I am on that much insulin it
will be very hard to lose weight - which I haven't been able to.  I am very
strick w/my eating  and my last A1C was 6.9.  Good Luck but I still believe
the more insulin the more weight gain.
