Re: [IPk] Frustration



Hi Caroline  no you are not a  complete  failure  i get the same sort of
thing and i have had diabetes a long time have been on the pump for 6mounts
and my doctor says that it takes about 9mounts to sort things out   did you
have a cup of tea or some thing when you woke up and did the test or was
your insulin low in you reservoir you may have morning high's but i shood
come down  may bee you are heading for a cold or something  this will be the
sort of thing to shoot up your sugars
                                                             best regards
                                                                  vic
