Re: [IP] Re: high's vs low's



For what it's worth--
This year I had eye surgery to save my vision. I have had tight control for
years (<6.0 a1c), but my doctors said I was having too many lows--they would
actually prefer that I run a steady 150-170 than constantly dropping below
100. They said the zig-zagging contributed to my retinopathy. Well, I will
try anything to keep my eyesight. So I went on the pump and fiddled with the
basal rate until I found a pattern that kept me above 100 but below 200
(most of the time). My vision has been fine since then (knock on plastic).
