Re: [IP] dead pump

I used regular insulin at 4 hour intervals for my basals and humalog for
meals. I had higher than normal readings for the first day and a half and a
few lows during the 4 days without the pump. Other than that my bg's were
somewhat stable and I was very much ready when the refurbished pump arrived
on Wednesday morning. Also I should add that since I knew my pump would
arrive between 10:30 and 11:00 am that I only used humalog starting  night
and stopped all regular insulin usage. This was requested by my endo and it
seemed to work well.
