@Jeff: The pump acts like your basal insulin. The pump will give you your fast acting insulin continuously a little at a time. This acts like the long acting insulin that you take. My daughter has been on her Minimed since March and we absolutely love it. It offers us the ability to eat when we want to and still have good control over her blood sugar. I am sure that you will love it as much as we do!

I've been on the pump for about 6 years and CGMS for about 1 year. I know of no one using a pump that uses anything but Novolog or Humalog.
Good luck.

I'll be training and starting the pump Friday and getting CGM next week,and I'm hoping for better control and a little more freedom.I was wondering if i'll still have to take a long lasting shot with the fast acting.If anyone knows just let me know?Thanks.

ive had mine almost a year and doing pretty goos but could be better, thats why i am trying to get medicare to pay for the cgm items

You will love the freedom it provides. Be patient though as it takes a little getting used to. I dropped in toilet the first night and accidently ripped out the second. Now 10 years later and I believe it has saved my life.

i started on my insulin pump today and so far so good

My pump has just been approved by the insurance company. I'm more happy than words can say!! And, as I'm getting a Pradigm Veo, I guess I'll be a little more active in this group in the future and ask you for your help for starters!

As far as downloading Carelink on Intel Mac you would need to do it from Windows with Internet Explorer. I use VMware Fusion rather than Bootcamp. Never tried Parallels. I haven't upgraded Windows though so still use XP.

With MM you don't have to wait for it to tell you to calibrate to calibrate. In fact, sometimes it works better if you don't wait the full 12 hours. I normally calibrate when I wake up in the morning so I get a true fasting. Then I'll calibrate again before dinner. If my sensor and meter are more than 20 apart and I'm not extremely high, I'll calibrate, as well.
Comment by A. Kelsey Metcalf on June 14, 2010 at 7:48pm
Chef, one thing I've found that's helpful is to make sure I do a bg (and calibration) before bed. Then I make it through the night without a meter bg now alert. Hope that helps!
