RE: [IPk] Help.... BGs shooting through the roof

Dear Rhoda

If you are at all concerned regarding your blood sugars on the pump, you
should discuss this with your original pump nurse trainer, they are there to
provide the back up and support you do need from time to time on a pump and
are really the only people who can give you advice on your insulin dosages,
with the exception of your  own diabetes nurse specialist.

There are lots of things you can try with the regard to the pump to rule
things in and out when you get unexplained high blood sugars, but, as I say,
you really are best to discuss these with your nurse trainer/representative,
especially if you are experiencing other symptoms which are giving you cause
for concern.

Good luck!
