"Me too. My ping goes through the hand baggage x-ray without issue. Maybe the pump companies are erring on the side of $ caution as in, " If one in ten thousand gets damaged, even because the next guy put an 80 lb. brick on top of it, we still…"

Woohoo! Today was my first successful day at the gym with NO LOW! Sure its not super amazing but its the small things that count right?

2 hours before the gym I had some scrambled eggs with cheese, piece of toast and an orange (alright more like a lunch). I didn't give the full recommended amount of insulin and by the time I got to the gym I tested and was at 9.3 and reduced my basal to -75%, after 20 minutes of intense cardio I retested and was at 5.5. I worked out mainly on the…
