RE: [IP] Did you have to do all this STUFF before pumping? Im MAD!!!



I haven't actually started using insulin in the pump so I can't say yet. I
too find this a curious statement and am going to be paying close attention
to see in what way things will be different. The CDE says that ultralente
does not give a "true" basal insulin (don't know what she means by this) and
that the pump using Humalog does and this is supposed to make a big
difference. For one thing, she told me I would no longer bolus for snacks,
only for meals. Anyone else found this to be true?

This is a curious thing for him/her to say.  Have you found yourself
needing to unlearn anything yet?  Let us know in a couple weeks
what you are unlearning <g>
