"I have CGMS, so I bolus depending on the reading. But the Bolus adjustment I do per gel (25g carbs or 35g carbs depending on my plan) is about 50% or less of what I would normally do for that amount of carbs is I am not running. Example: On last…"
"I'd stick with the pump. I had a similar experience going off of it last summer. I had a long run on Saturday, switched to Levemir after that, had a nice time of it for 2-3 days but then went off to Maui and had a really hard time. It was sort…"
