My doc thinks it's great, but I'm not sure he would have told me to. My fingers are a bit sore. I'm still adjusting to counting carbs, etc., and end up doing more corrections than I would ultimately like to. If I only tested every 4-6 hours, I would most likely miss some highs. As I get the hang of counting and eating the right amounts, and get my basil rates dialed in better, I should be able to slack off. That, or get on a continuous monitor, so I can see the trends and catch lows or highs early/b4 they get that way.
Being a new pump user, I am testing 12 or more times a day, mostly during the daytime hours. The first month I did wake up during the night to test as well. I tend to be up most nights pretty late anyway. It was all part of the adjustment period for me. The pump currently is set to remind me every 2 hours to test. As I get more and more used to it, I will begin to taper off on the frequency.
