Re: [IP] RE: insulin-pumpers-digest V7 #556

Hi Cathy,
I've had the MM Paradigm for about 2 1/2 weeks and have a few questions, I
responded to you because I still don't know how to post my questions to the
whole members list. Anyway, yes pumping is way better than shots but I'm
having a few problems. Have you every had your quick release come undone and
not know it until your BG was out of control high. Also, Does adrenaline or
stress affect your BG very much? It also seems that my BG is so much harder
to control one week prior to my period? Do they have any studies on why this
happens, I know it's probably all about hormones since insulin in a hormone
I've also notice that since I've been on the pump, I've started to lose a
lot of hair.
Enought questions for one email, thanks a bunch.
Also, How do we read new profiles of new members?
