LOL...Any support is better than none. That low feeling will slowly go away.
I like the window the 30 gives you. As long as the canula is in the skin in that window you are ok. that's my favorite part of the 30. But sadly I don't seem to be able to use them. I have a slight allergy to it I guess. I tried 2 of them and by 24 hours I was having trouble with them itchinging and burning. It's been 6 days since I took the last one out and I still looked burned. The 90s are great for me though. I just wish the little window was easier to see through. Guess I can't always have my way. Anyway by week 2 you'll start feeling like a pro.

Thanks : ) 92 feels pretty shaky still but I am trying to work through that. It will get better. It almost makes me panic at times - I abhor lows and my body does not handle them well! I am using the inset 30. Currently I have a pink one in : ) The office manager and an intern at work were fascinated by the pump and its "stuff" so I had a small audience for my first solo time changing the set! It was pretty funny actually : )

Good job Rose! How does that 92 feel?
I worry about my infusion sets everytime I change them. But when my BG is good after a meal I know they are fine. Which sets r u using?
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 21, 2010 at 3:51pm
In response to myself from earlier today my last BG was 92 so the tube must be where it is suposed to be! Hooray!
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 21, 2010 at 12:20pm
So I changed my own infusion set for the first time today. I am a little worried because it feels like the little tube has some of it on the surface still so I hope I am getting my insulin : ( We will see...

I think it's great that you're so open to the adjustments that come with pumping, it's so worth it! I've been pumping with Animas for almost 3 years and am still making basal adjustments regularly as I get fitter and my training regimen changes. Keep up the awesome work, the more you test the more informed we are to make decisions.
Have a great workout!
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 19, 2010 at 4:33pm
Yes, I have been good about testing : ) I called the animas support # and spoke with someone. For now since I can't get in touch with my doctor she had me lower the basal quite a bit. I have another class at the gym tonight so better safe than sorry today. After running awful highs for years this is bound to be a bit of a process to get balanced. I am a little frustrated and my eating disorder issues make it stressful to have to treat lows but I need to put my health first so I am pushing forward! This is the first full day so I guess I can cut myself some slack.
Comment by type1kanu on January 19, 2010 at 4:04pm
Rose, when you say you "feel like" you're dropping ... are you testing to confirm this before you alter your basal or take tabs? Feelings can be misleading, especially when exercise is involved (I spend a ton of time testing during workouts cuz something doesn't feel right, most of the time, it's just cuz I'm working hard!).
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 19, 2010 at 3:11pm
I think I am going crazy, this is a very weird feeling. Thanks for all the encouragement : )
Morning glucose 97 after having my basal at .75 all night
Felt low at the gym
8 glucose tabs later... finally felt better
dropped my basal to temp mode -70% (from 1/hr) for 4 hours
Bolus at lunch - less than the ratio I am programed for suggested
127 b.g. anf feels like I am dropping
Dropped basal to .5
