Re: [IPk] Have been on the pump since December 01



hi DONNALD  yes i have noticed some changes in my appearance i have lost
weight  the reason being is that i do not get so many  hypos  but as for
saying i was up at 2 this morning  i was tidying up just be fore going to
bed when i put the milk back in the frige when i noticed some chocolate so
as i was on my own i had just 4 pieces and bolus for them  must have had to
much insulin and had a hypo in the early morning   so this one was down to
me

Please do not be shy in meeting people in the same position as you  it dose
one good to speak to some one that  can relate to your problem   see you
some time

best regards  vic
