Re: [IP] A1c



    Keep making progress. Learn as much as you can about the pump and what
makes your BG go up and down. Use the pump as a tool to control things that
maybe you could not control before. Example: eating pizza or ice cream, or
maybe exercising. Keep plugging away with the best tool for the job. At
least you are not trying to keep a performance engine in tune with just a
pair of pliers and a screwdriver. You have the latest and best tool for the
job--the pump. And the performance engine is YOU!
