Re: [IPk] Hypo control



Hi Elizabeth

Thanks for your comments.  In my reply to Di you will see what I propose to 
do next.  I have been lengthening the time the basals are off for.  Thanks 
for your sympathy and I hope I am soon back to normal.  I have my 
appointment on Monday which is also my birthday so things have got to go 
right on that day - June being very positive!

June
