RE: [IPk] Re Pump

Hi Julie

I do sympathise with you - I have been on a pump for coming up to 3 years,
type 1 for 30 years, and am struggling to get good control. I had a couple
of hours when I first had the pump too, and I need very small amounts of
insulin, currently about 16 units per day total. Recently I have upped my
basals by 0.1 over 24 hours, and then I can hardly keep above 4 for the
whole day - it seems to be a big reaction to such a small amount of insulin.

How much insulin are you taking? Do you have the help and support of a DSN?

Hi can anyone help, I am very sensitive to insulin so it appears.

I cannot keep my blood sugars running at a normal or low reading the reason
being if I get it say to 5 or 6 I cannot stay at that I only have to do
something extra like walk to the shops and it will just drop so quickly.  I
have no hypo warning signs with long term diabetes. And I don't seem to be
able to get good control 

Anyone any ideas what I should be doing, I only went for a couple of hours
training on the pump, when I first got it,
