"Different strokes for different folks. I agree that I seldom hear pumpers complain about going low. But I constantly hear them complain about going high. There is always a "good, logical reason" -- didn't change the infusion set…"

"Pumps are not as automated as you might think. One of the main reasons behind not fully being backed b insurance is that it could be argued that they're not that different at all from syringes. They're really no different at all from…"

"Never been a pumper so I can't comment on making the switch, but one of the reasons I stay away from pumps is that it forces me to really think about what I'm doing. Keeping it on "manual" control -- measuring carbs and…"

"I've toyed with it for quite a while. I don't think infusion sets are agreeable with some of us. And that makes "real estate" hard to come by that isn't in a healing state or scar tissue. That's my case against pumps,…"

"Why not low carb and pump? The two are not mutually exclusive. I find that the lower dosages actually make it cheaper as insulin and sets last longer. While I agree that the ease of dosage can lead to 'sloppiness' in eating habits, it…"

Pump back to injections

Taking into consideration cost of insulin and for the first time ever a flatter slope than ever of my BGs since starting DrB, I'm strongly thinking about going back to MDI for the first time since '99. I embarrassingly think I overused pumping to support my high carb lifestyle and really think it might work now to go back to MDI. Anyone have experience with this? I don't even know where to start? I guess go see my endo and use up any current pump supplies.

JennElv replied to Lady Moon Rise's discussion 'Dr. Bernstein Review'
"I started Dr. B's outline (mostly) on August 1st and my BGs are finding a new normal. They used to range everywhere from 40s to 400s, they now range from 80s to 180s most days. My insulin (via insulin pump) was averaging about 80-90 units a day…"
