I recently started on an insulin pump, just over a month ago. I have been doing MDIs for over two decades (since I was a tiny kid) and finally gave that up. However, while I have to admit the pump has some fantastic advantages (bolus while standing in line for food, correct even just for a tiny bit of a high, like 135, etc), it has not been an easy transition. I have had ridiculously low and high b/s that I never had with shots. Is this a normal transition? This is not happening due to lack of effort b/c I am checking and recording and going to my endo & DE ALL THE TIME. How long did it generally take everyone to finally find a baseline of basals/boluses that worked? I realize everyone is different, but a month of super hard work to get it right (which it still isn't) seems like a lot, but maybe it's normal?
Thanks for any input!
