Howdy,
Okay so what do you pumpers do when you run? I'm still new to the pump but haven't really done solid running on it yet. I've just been lifting and know how to account my basal and ratios to that accordingly---but i know running will be COMPLETELY different unfortunately.

On MDI i would usually have 17u of lantus when i was in phases where I didn't do cardio much- then when i did do cardio my Lantus would be around 12.

I dunno, I haven't gotten a lot of medical advice about what I do? I don't like to run up to 200 ever.

my first tri as a diabetic i started at 180 and had a really good race. Since then i have started at 180 but with no insulin in board and bombed out. Last week i ran them to 16mmols, way too high and finished albeit slowly!
I rekon 200 and below.

Here is what works for me...I am very insulin sensitive so I reduce my bolus by 80% preferrably an hour prior to my run. I like to be up in the 140's when I start my run. I have a GU every 3-4 miles, and on long runs I have G2 in one of my fuel belt flasks. I have a snack when I get home.

I have had to postpone a long run or 2 if I am having one of those days with mulitple lows where the sugars just don't want to go where they need to be.

I have the OmniPod, which truly is wonderful for running, for me. Good luck!!
