Re: [IPk] HYPOS



Hi

I think the problems I have been reporting are largely due to the heat too. 
We did have a few cooler days between this heatwave and the last and I found 
things slightly better then.  I am still fighting for the pump I want and 
therefore still have the Medtronic 508 on which, as far as I know, it is not 
possible to lover by a percentage and different basals have to be made which 
have to be by 0.1.  Are others on the 508 having a particularly bad time?
