I spent most of the day at my endo's office yesterday starting insulin in my Ping. They like to monitor. Basal testing last night/this am and I'm down from 1.5-1.4 per hr. So far, so good. The tubing no longer bothers me, the sites are a non-issue. I did learn last week on saline to be sure the tubing is not where a Jack Russell foot can kick it when I pick on up. Hurts to have it pulled out! LOL
Last night I threw away my open levemir and novalog pens... with a flourish. So nice to be rid of MDIs!
The CDE I worked with was great, agrees that combo boluses are best for protein/fat meals. So, I'll start there and start working on TAG when I'm more stable. They also like the patient to be in charge of changes, but do want to be notified. I really like this practice!
I'd like to get samples of cleos and orbit minis - does anyone know where I can get them? I've done web searches to no avail.
Thanks so much for all the support and info from TuD. Being well-informed makes the transition so much smoother, having this community is incredibly supportive.
