"At GNC and the Vitamin Shoppe I've found good Protein powders. I don't remember the brands but several have very low to no carbs.

"This is my first pump. I was on injections before. But wanted to go to the pump because I travel so much and have started increasing my mileage running as well. On injections I was having too many lows and hard to manage. Now on the pump I'm so…"
"I ordered the black one and received it last week. I really like it. But be careful on removing it as the plastic can stretch a bit. But the good news is I bent it back into shape a bit and all is good. Everybody wants me to remove it when they find…"

"I just read the instructions. It was very simple as far as I'm concerned. But it all depends on who you are as well. I'm a techie guy. So I just dove right in and got going on it. But if it was someone like my mother she would need direct…"
"I would restart it as well. I've had it fail on me on the old Dex7 version. And a restart worked almost every time. In fact I had one in for 2 days. It failed twice on my on day 2. And also gave me the ??? error several times. After about the…"
