Re: [IP] candy, linda and enough bolus

Ruth - Yes, it is the sub meter.  It really helps in getting the rates
corrected, especially the ones at night.  Please tell your daughter I know
how it is.  I was diagnosed at age 8.  With the new technology, there is so
much new coming that hopefully they will find a cure.  I also know that the
next stage will be a sensor that beeps when the blood sugar goes low or
high, so that the patient can adjust their rates (eat or turn the pump off)
before they get a dangerous range.  Take care!
