Re: [IPk] Hypo control

Hi Melissa

Thanks for your ideas.  I will mention this to my consultant if he has no 
other suggestions on Monday

I looked into cornstarch (which, I understand is what we call cornflower) 
last night on google but could not really find any references apart from 
your piece on the Insulin Pumpers site.  Can you give me any references 
please?  It was your idea that made me have a biscuit which I don't 
generally do. I am beginning to think that insulin must last much longer in 
me and it from the bolus where I need to alter the ratio.
