RE: [IPk] Re Pump



Hi
Went for pump training review, there are only 5 people on pump where I live
in Huddersfield, so was just a small group.
I explained about my insulin dropping quickly or going very high.
She said I may have well I cant remember the name but it happens in long
term diabetics where the food stays in the stomach for a longer period of
time, she said I could have a test.
Do you know what the test is and what is the treatement if any.

Regards
Julie

If you only changed it for one hour then it seems unlikely that that was 
the sole cause of you being low for hours.....it was probably other 
factors too (exercise, alcohol, eating earlier/lower carb,.....)
