RE: [IPk] Unexpected increase in sinsulin needs?


You're very correct on that. There are so many variables that can effect your
blood sugars. Time of day, type of exercise, food eaten in the last day,
insulin intake, how you're feeling physically, even allergies, etc etc. The
list goes on and on.Heck, if this were easy, anyone could be a diabetic! oh,
wait, hmm..... :-)

Type 1 10 years. Pumping 4 years. Paradigm 722.
