Re: [IPp] One Touch Ultra Link w/Minimed Pump

With the minimed you still have to scroll through the "formula" customized 
to your child's personal insulin regimine, you just don't have to arrow 
arrow arrow until you reach the desired blood sugar level.  Once you look at 
the "formula" and it gives you the recommend bolus amount you can then 
increase or decrease or simply hit "act" again to accept what the forumla is 
calculating.  If you find you have to override the recommend amount too 
often you probably need to discuss changes with your endo and possible 
revisit your basal or ratios.  If you are entering a high physical activity 
period you can  simply switch to a "temporary basal rate".  I guess you can 
become complacent and simply hit "act, act, act all the way through, but 
then again if your sensitivity rate, basal rate and insulin to carb ratio 
are set correctly then the boluz wizard should be as accurate as it can be.
