Re: [IPk] Temp rates



Hi Jane

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.

June
