RE: [IPk] Pump latest and thankyou

Hi Barbara,

Sadly I am not getting brilliant control with Lantus/Novorapid. From about
10am - 11pm blood glucose levels are great (under 7 mmol) with little
variance - 5mmol before eating and just under 7mmol 2 hours later but at
night things are different - although improving - at 1am Hypo and from 4am
rising up to a peak of 17mmol when I get up. The Hypo issue has been dealt
with by injecting the Lantus earlier - which appears to have worked - but
there is no scope to increase the amount of Lantus without the risk of this
re-occurring - so still have the highs when I get up. I understand that this
is quite a common problem. Obviously just a couple of hours at 17mmol is
increasing the risk of complications quite seriously. A pump appears to me
the best potentially available way of dealing with this - since I doubt if
an islet transplant will fall my way!

Hello Adrian

That's good news that one of the newest pumps from the USA is about to come
to us.  Why is it that you would prefer a pump when you are using Lantus and
 Novorapid? I am a beginner on Lantus/Novorapid and I am finding it good for
lifestyle because I can eat when I want instead of feeding the insulin that
hanging around from my two insulins injected in the morning.  My daughter
a pump and it suits all of us very well but I don't think I would like one
myself because my current regime is great.

Type 1 for 30 years (injected with syringe and 2 bottles twice daily until
the other day when I was given Lantus/Novorapid with pens which don't hurt)
Mum of Danielle, aged 9, pumping since Nov 2002
