Re: [IP] on pump for 24 hours



Hi BL090698,

Your gut reaction is right on. That endo needs a new ))$(#*#)! Nobody, but 
nobody can tell you exactly how pumping or anything else will work in your 
body. I would high tail it outta that endo's practice.

Medicine might be a science, but there's a lot they don't know about the 
drugs and stuff they use. So pay attention to what you know about diabetes 
in you, and if you don't have a team that pays attention to your knowledge, 
dump them! I told my pump educator that I was very fearful of Humalog and 
the large boluses she'd estimated. Sure enough, I proved myself right, after 
having lows 45 minutes after meals, and she immediately changed her 
attitude.

Good luck to you.

Dawn

Subject: [IP] on pump for 24 hours

I have a question and hoping someone will give me some advice. I started on
the 507c yesterday and my Dr. told me that I would be running in the high
200's and that a low was pretty much not going to happen. Well in 24 hours I
have had 4 low sugars. So alittle concerned I called my endo. When she 
picked
up the phone she said " Make it quick I am with a patient" I was shocked by
the lack of support and wanted very much to rip her a new #*@!. She said 
when
you are low eat and ended our conversation. Well being that this is all so
new to me,I was disgusted by her actions. Disgusted is not really exact, I
was extremely pissed!! I think a change in endo's might be a good idea. For
all who have experience with the pump please tell me if it is normal to have
so many lows after only 24 hours! Please help Thank you very much  Leesa
