Re: [IPk] Temp rates
I am still on the 508 at present and can only go 0.0 to 0.1. However, I am
trying to get temporary control with a smaller bolus at evening meal. This
is making me go to high at present. I really would like the Animas and am
still hopeful it will happen but they are having a hospital meeting on the
issue next Tuesday so I must forget it and do my best in other ways until
then. Thanks for your idea.
