I started with my pump on Friday and was set up with a much lower basal rate, I to C ratio and sensitivity level than what I was using on MDI. When my endo was spelling out the rates to my trainer I thought to myself that they would never work and expected to soon raise them. Well guess what I'm two days in and things are going perfectly.
Here's where I'm at. My basal rate is about half of what it was with Levemir. My insulin to carb ration is set 60% less than when on MDI. My sensitivity level is set three times higher than what I have been using, haven't had to do a correction so I don't know how it will work.
I know that absorption is better with a pump but I didn't expect it to be that much better. Has anyone else had a similar experience. I am type 2 and considered myself to be insulin resistant but it appears that I'm not as resistant as I thought. I guess that all the diet and exercise has made more of a difference than I thought.
BTW the bolus wizard rocks.
