[IP] re: Weight loss

I lost about 35 pounds over the first six or eight months of pumping
(with Humalog). The plain and simple reason was that I didn't have to
eat to avoid hypos  at the times that my basal needs are low, and
because I ate so much less I lost weight.  I've maintained that weight
loss and stayed at my ideal weight for about a year with no effort at
At first I was concerned enough to discuss it with my CDE and endo. They
have both had a lot of experience with patients who pump and were very
reassuring.  Now I just enjoy it!

Has anyone on the pump that uses Humalog experienced weight loss?  Don't
know if it is because of the close watch on everything I eat for
bolusing or
if there is something to concern myself about using Humalog.  Any
experiences? Thanks for any help.
