[IPk] Ivan's website

This website is amazing. I am awaiting my pump to be delivered - an Accu-chek
Spirit. I guess many of the things you mention are fairly general and can be
applied whichever pump anyone is using - but just to be on the safe side for
when I "go on", can you switch to the Sprirt and do another website! ;>).

Seriously though - a great job.

Reading these emails makes me realise what an informed, articulate and
intelligent group we have. It's almost as if diabetics are just like normal
people :>o. David Hales > Date: Thu, 3 Jul 2008 00:11:18 +0200> Subject: [IPk]

High bgs are caused by fact that currently available insulins do not seem> to
ideal for pumps. There are 2 reasons for it:> - activity time of rapid acting
insulin is around 4 hours which is too> long. It usually causes high bg after
around 1,5 hour after the meal and> low bg 3-4 hours after the meal. High bg
problem is usually experienced in> the morning as it is after the first bolus
during the day. Because> diabetics are recommended to eat (and bolus) every
2,5-3 hours the low bg> is usually prevented by the next meal. And because the
insulin is active> for 4 hours, every next meal is covered by part of
preceding bolus.> Together with morning high bgs there are often low bgs
around bed time.> - insulin concentration of 100 IU/ml is too strong.> >
Solution of your problem is to split your breakfast into 2 portions with> let
say an hour break between them. And if your evening bg is low, take a> small
piece of fruit before going to bed. You need to experiment with the> length of
break and amount of food / insulin.> > I am just in the middle of the study of
