Ok, Ok -- ya gotta carb count. The charts on the several pages at the
back of Pumping Insulin CAN BE FITTED ON ONE 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. The must

Heck, if my 14 year old daughter has been doing it successfully for 3

I know I'm not a pumper myself but until this year I've practically had
to live in Lily's skin to make sure she learned everything she needed to
be independent. The pages are copyrighted so I can't put them on the
website but you can certainly take them to your local copy shop and get
the 'magic' one page made. 90% of the foods you eat every day are 'in
the book' on those pages!!!!!
No EXCUSES - get healthy
