Re: [IPp] Q: Combo lantus pump



 Well when we switch to the untethered regime in the fall he may not always have
pump off that long it varies but his basal on pump is only .25 per hour so for
him not big deal

Cool.

Would this also work for a shorter period of time, like 2-3 hours of 
swimming so she can swim without a pump on?  I will check with my endo at 
next weeks visit, but I am just curious if you have tried it for shorter 
periods. Suzanne
