Congratulations on your new Ping, NorCal! There is a fairly steep learning curve, but once you climb over that mountain you will love it. I got mine a year ago January and came on here several times with questions, so post away!

Comment by NorCal T1 on April 2, 2012 at 2:47pm

Rushed to the ER on 11/7/11 and thought to be a T2. My PCP had a feeling and after roughly 2 months and much more lab work, it was confirmed that I'm a T1 and therefore changed my insulin. Now after another 2 1/2 months of trying to manage MDI's with Novolog and Lantus, I was approved for the pump. The order will be sent in today and I'll be relearning the whole process again. Good thing I was paying attention as we were going along. I'm looking forward to this new chapter in the adventure.

1. Largest normal bolus: 5 units
2. NovoLog
3. 3 days, 4 if it's a great site and I have insulin left
4. Inset 30s, though I do want to try the regular Insets

I have been on the ping for 2 months and love it. It is so easy to use. And they gave me a good price on supplies. My TDD is 135-160.

Comment by Florian Menninger Jr on January 29, 2012 at 4:28am
One more thing since the pump cartridge holds 200U and my TDD is 30U, I put in a new cart and INSET every 5 days and sometimes 6. I am going to start changing infusion sites every 3 to 4 days.
Comment by Florian Menninger Jr on January 29, 2012 at 4:11am
Thanks for all of the good replies. I try to keep my Novolog bolus dose to 5 U or less. Larger doses of Novolog seem to take longer to absorb and are slower to cause a change in BS when I do a correction. Do any of you see or notice this difference between small and large blouses of insulin?

Comment by Stephen Meo on January 27, 2012 at 8:53am

1. 6 units
2. Novolog
3. 3 or 4 days
4. Inset 9mm/23"

Comment by Ramon on January 26, 2012 at 5:54pm

1. I try to keep it under 18 units in 1 dose.
2. Novalog
3. 2 1/2 days max. The site starts to hurt after about 48 hours.
4. The 23 in. Inset.

Comment by Zoe on January 26, 2012 at 5:41pm

1. 6 units
2 Apidra
3. 3 days, 4 if I all is well; but I lose sets right away or after a day at times. In response to the OP, when it continues to hurt like that I usually know the set isn't good and wait through one meal to see.
4.I use the inset 30's 43"
