Linda, regarding the bad insulin, I've never been on insulin (T2, currently controlled by diet and exercise only) so I'm not sure how to test it's efficiency or what recourse you have for the bad batch. I know Bennet at YDMV blogged about pharmaceutical delivery issues back over the summer. I would ask the question on the Type 1 forum to see how other insulin users have dealt with it.
Hi Linda, On your question regarding bsg's and exercise... My understanding is this... Workouts release the glucose stored in your muscle tissue for use by the body during the exercise (at least that's what my doc and personal trainer say). Since you're a pumper you can cope with this a lot easier. Because believe it or not, I counter that with LESS insulin during workouts. I use a temporary lowered basal rate during the workout. You will also continue running at a higher metabolabolic rate for a few hours after your workout, so if you experience a post workout high, lower your correction bolus a little to reduce the drop. But, the best way I've found is to prevent it with a slightly lower basal (about 20% lower) during the workout. Make sure your bsg is in your target range prior to exercising or you're still going to get funky numbers. If I take a correction bolus, then workout, I crash in the middle of my exercise ;-)
