"Hi Danboy. A lot of good info here. I do think that a temporary lower basal would probably solve the problem. Whoever helps you get started should be able to set it and at the same time show you how to use when you need it."

"I got an Animas Ping a week ago. I have to say, it's done wonders. Love it. I don't think i'd go back to DMI if asked and I really like having the remote and meter all in one. That is so helpful."

"Alot of it depends on how much fat you have and what areas you want to use it on. The more fat the longer the infusion set. I would as you rep what she would recommend for your body type."
