Re: [IP] A Little Confused ???



Tim,

As always YMMV and I would not presume to know more than your endo. However,
I find that any/all doctors I have ever seen tend to be overly conservative
and do not always make their recommendations based on "the real world". For
years I was told that if I didn't eat Breakfast at 8 am, Lunch at noon and
Dinner at 5 pm with two snacks thrown in for good measure I would surely
have complications and not control my condition. However, I found that after
a few years of "experience" I could adjust my meal times using the knowledge
I gained from living with D 24/7. Again I can't make medical recommendations
for you, but since my start on the MM507C two years ago, I am able to skip
or adjust meal times at will (so long as I monitor closely and ensure my BG
remains at an acceptable level). Either way, the pump is likely to change
your life for the better and as I see it "you can't go wrong"!!
