Re: [IP] Daytech Bob on Pump Choice


I have gastro and I have a few occasional pig outs and I just use the temporary basel increase or decrease on the D and it works great.

> Dual wave?  This MM feature is nifty IF you have any gastro paresis problems, or are prone to eating what you want when you want it and have 'issues' with pigging out on ice cream, pizza, peanut butter, or other high fat, high protein meals.  I wish my Dise had this feature, as I both pig out and have gastro.  Two Pumps?  This is great if you're a worry wart and do not want to 'fall back on injections' for any reason whatsoever. I sometimes wonder how long Disetronic will be able to sustain this 2 pump program from a financial perspective.  Also if your diabetes is 'sensitive' and you're prone to making frequent changes in your regime, having two pumps is a godsend.  You can program both of them differently and try them out to see what works best, without starting from ground zero every morning or whatever.  Water sport?  If you're a real water baby- skiier, swimmer, surfer- or otherwise spend a lot of time in the water the Dise is great.  MM however is not really water phob!
