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



That's what I thought. That's certainly the way it works with MDI and unless
I completely misunderstand things, it's the way it works with the pump too.
If the basal rate is only supposed to keep your sugar stable when you are
NOT eating then it follows that a bolus is necessary if you do eat, even if
it's just a snack. This is exactly what she said but perhaps she meant
something else. I will be sure to ask about this again on Wednesday.

You better bolus for everything you eat that has any carbs in it or you will
be in big trouble.  Cant believe she said that.  I had  1 and a half hrs in
the Drs. office with my CDE and when home started with Humalog right away.
Had some initial problems but nothing serious.  This group helped me get
adjusted ALOT!!  It has now been  a year and a half and am pumping like
crazy.  Thanks again!!
