Re: [IPp] Too many blood tests

Eric, Her blood sugars are probably running more "even" and she may not be
used to the feeling.  Since she just went on the pump I would let her test
as often as she feels it's necessary.  My daughter Kaycee 9 and pumping also
goes through phases when she tests quite frequently.  I like to let her have
some control so I ussually just wait it out.  Maryann Crawford
