Re: [IPp] pump trial questions



My CDE recommends the 43 inch tubing for kids,because if the pump and hits
the ground the site won't pull off.  I would definitely try only one kind of
set for the first month. You are working with so many new variables
absorption, sites, basals,boluses.that it makes sense to try to stay with
something as long as you can. Kaycce is 8 and she uses the silhouettes.
