Re: [IP] would this be dumb?

Not dumb at all. In fact when I first went onto the pump, I bought a bottle
of saline water from the druggist and practiced filling my cartridges and
wore the thing filled with (sterile) saline for a couple of days. Infusion
set and all in and pumping saline water.

I used the "Pumping Insulin" book to calculate my basals, and when I did go
on it LIVE, I had no trouble at all.

Good luck!
