I have only been on the pump 4 months. But I intend to take a break from the pump every summer vacation for two weeks..
I figure if I am abroad, swimming, sunbathing, diving spending time on the beach etc then this would be a good time to switch back to MDI.
There is a section on this in pumping insulin by Walsh. I will just switch back to Lantus and Novorapid.
I hope this will leave me feeling more refreshed, as well being a good reminder of the benefits and joys of pumping.
Have to say since starting the pump in November, I haven't been disconnected for more than 45 minutes ha. Weird how quickly you get used to it.
