I added some cool pump tunes over on the Animas classic tunes page, in case anyone is interested!

I really think that the only thing that needs changing is my carb ratio because I'm typically highest when I eat.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:45pm

I don't do it on purpose. I am working on it. I just started seeing a doctor for it. I love my educator. My endo is good but I can't understand her through her accent. :( They said it will take time and it's different for everyone. I don't feel comfortable tweaking it by myself yet but I will. I also just started using the dexcom as well.

Comment by Zoe on April 14, 2014 at 9:36pm

You really want to get your numbers down, Nichole; staying in the range of 250 on a regular basis is a set-up for complications! Do you have a good endo and/or cde to work with? Three months should be enough time to get your pump doses tweaked. I encourage you to read Pumping Insulin by John Walsh so you can learn to tweak your own doses.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:30pm

I was doing alright on the insulin pen but since I have been on the pump it's been a while finding the perfect dosages. I've only had it three months and I know it takes time to get it just right.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 14, 2014 at 9:25pm

I don't know I was diagnosed as a kid. I also typically have glucose levels over 250.

Comment by Zoe on April 12, 2014 at 10:31pm

I was just wondering how they determined you were Type 1, since your insulin resistance sounds more like type 2.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 12, 2014 at 9:09pm

I'm not sure about the antibodies but I go back in two months so I will ask about that. And thank you!!

Comment by Zoe on April 12, 2014 at 8:47pm

That's rough, dealing with IR as a Type 1. You might want to read Using Insulin by John Walsh so you can control your own doses and not have to rely on your doctors to change each step. Are you positive for antibodies? Congrats on getting your A1C down, by the way.

Comment by NicholeW28 on April 12, 2014 at 8:40pm

Zoe, I've always had a high resistance and I haven't been on the pump very long so we are still working on fine tuning my insulin dosages. They think the Symblin will help so we don't have to keep increasing it all the time. I'm just glad they only changed my basal rate this time and not everything like they usually do. I'm at a 1:5 carb ratio as it is. I do limit my carb intake and also exercise daily.
