RE: [IP] Tennis or racquetball?



Disconnect? I did that the first time I exercised (walk/run) and pumped. My
pump/nurse scolded me...no, no don't disconnect just do the temp basal rate.
Oh and I clip it to my waistband but with the pump on the inside of my
shorts and the clip on the outside-a bit more snug and reduces the
bumping/bouncing. Just gets a little wet from the perspiration...yuck!

I don't play tennis, but I play racquetball.  I keep it on when I play, but
I  play regularly, so my basal rate accounts for the activity.  I usually
keep it on to help with bg rise from adreneline, though I find myself
adjusting it on my wasitband as I play.  It is a distraction sometimes, but
not really a problem.  I've run into the wall with it a couple of times and
it has been ok, but I don't remember it getting hit by the ball.
