Re: [IPk] third week of the pump starts tomorrow



Hi Elizabeth,

I don't quite undertand how this has happened.  Was this because you had
given a bolus and then not eaten or is it due to the fact that you were
using the square wave bolus function but mistook the amount of insulin you
needed for particular meals.

Out of interest, how much information have you received regarding carb
counting?

Kind regards
