"I think that all depends on the circumstances when you're going low. I've been up and about, not knowing I was so low, and was at a 26. If sleeping, and that low, I probably would not be able to wake up in the morning and would be…"

BSP replied to M裏Çhïêvðµ§'s discussion 'Help?!' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"You could need an adjustment to your pump settings. You could be inserting the infusion set into somewhere that has a lot of scar tissue or bad absorption rates of the insulin. There could be something wrong with your pump."

Allie Beatty replied to BSP's discussion 'Minimed Pump with Dexcom CGM?'
"I'm curious about the feedback you've received because I tried the 530G with Enlite for 24-hour and didn't have a great experience with it. I want to do a fair review (YouTube video) so I'm looking for unbiased pros and cons from…"

BSP replied to NatetheDiabetic's discussion 'New Enlite Medtronic sensor' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"It is compatible, but not FDA approved to be used with anything but the 530G pump. If you can get your doc to "fight" for off-label use it may be worth it. I was involved in the clinical trial, so knew from that experience that the…"

BSP replied to Krztina's discussion 'Basal Testing - Quck question' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"If you are not in range at the start of the test, then you need to correct and CANNOT do the test. The point of the test is to see if your basal rates are where they need to be, but if you've taken a correction you're not TRULY testing the…"

BSP replied to Molly Schreiber's discussion 'Minimed 530G with Enlite' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"I've only ever used a MM system (first CGM in 2007), but I've heard quite a bit about people that switch FROM the dex to MM have calibration issues. Apparently, with Dex you can calibrate at any time. This is not true with MM. Also, you…"

BSP replied to Sara~ Type 1's discussion 'Type 1 and the mini pill?' in the group Diabetes and Women
"What are you using for diabetes management (pump or MDI)? When on BCP, I used a monophasic pill (microgestin) as opposed to a tri-phasic pill. This allowed me to have one pattern of basal settings for three weeks (when on the pill and needed more…"
