Re: [IPp] Fast Food



Lori,
My daughter Tiffany has been pumping now for 1 month.  We love it.  It is
actually much easier than the injections.  We felt like we were constantly
chasing the insulin with the injections.  Now we do not have to have such a
strict regimin with food and insulin.  For the first time, we feel like we
control the diabetes, and not the other way around.  Things will work out.
work closely with your daughter and her school.  There are also 2 very good
books out.  1. www.calorieking.com has a book that is awesome as far as carb
counting goes, and 2. Understanding Insulin Dependant Diabetes by H. Peter
Chase which can be purchased at www.uchsc.edu . I highly recommend both
books.
Leah
Mom of Tiffany, 9 dxd age 8 pumping 1 month
