Endo visit went great, he's very pleased with my numbers...but wants me not to push it TOO far with my A1c, because of this risks for so many hypo's. Im determined though Im going to keep my A1c around where it's at and somehow minimize the number of hypo's too. LOL said I had the best A1c of all his patients on a pump, hahahh guess a lot of people probably think its a magic fix and can eat whatever they want to. All it is is just a better delivery system, but definately NOT a magic fix.

As far as my rapid, he doesn't see the benefit of going on Apidra yet, and did some tweaking with my I/C ratio and also my target range. I was 80-100 premeals, now he has me set at 90-110. Thinks that will also help minimize hypo's.

I wanted to go on Birth control simply to minimize the wild hormone swing with ovulation...but unfortunately because of a pre breast cancer condition, the oncologist said NO BIRTH CONTROL. LOL. Crap...ok maybe a hysterectomy then.

Congratulations on the great visit! The little bump up in your target should help a lot with the hypos. Ending up 25 points below target from a 90 is a borderline 65; 25 points below target from an 80 is a clear low. I've found that having a strategy of maintaining tight control but tactially avoiding hypos works pretty well.

I'm glad you found a doc you like and get along with!!

hahaha yeah me too. Im not the easist of patients to deal with. So it's going pretty good. He was really happy too I hadn't put on a bunch of weight since going on my pump. I don't eat a WHOLE lot, even if being on a pump makes it easier to dose for. So def not an issue there. And he's happy I've started exercising more. So overall a happy Endo and a happy patient. LOL.
