FHS replied to Melissa Price's discussion 'Minimum Basal Level still too much' in the group OmniPod Users
"Can you clarify something? Your minimum basal rate is less that .05 u/hr continuously over 24 hours? In other words, if you basal test over 24 hours, you'll program in .05 u/hr for any given block of time and still go low 1 to 3 hours later?"

jla replied to Melissa Price's discussion 'Minimum Basal Level still too much' in the group OmniPod Users
"Have you tried using temporary basal and reducing the basal rate by up to about -90%? I'm not sure that would work but it might be worth a try. I would be greatly unhappy to go back to anything else than my O'pod."

Minimum Basal Level still too much

Hi - Two years ago, I was taken off my OmniPod after 2 1/2 great years of use. I refuse to go on a pump with tubes, but the minimum .05/hr basal rate is too much for me (i have LADA or MODY with secondary insulin function). Some of the pumps with tubes have .025/hr basal rate, but I do not want to use one of those! I have been doing MDI for the past 20 months. Ugh is all I can say. I am busy with work and raising my three young boys. Does anyone know if there is a way to reduce the basal level…See More

Hey, Melissa. (Great name, btw.) I noticed that you're still using the default "welcome - upload your photo" hand image as your profile image. If you'd like to add some kind of picture to be your profile photo, look for the "Settings" link in the upper right portion of each page (next to the little silver gears). The very first option in Settings will walk you through changing your profile image. Good luck!

Hi Melissa,

I am also a member of this group and a Type 1 Diabetic. I thought you might be interested in meeting other Type 1s and wanted to let you know that I am the organizer of a meetup group called G.A.T.E.-Gastroparesis And Type1 Diabetes Exchange.

It is for Type 1s as well as for those with Gastroparesis and their caregivers. You can have either condition separately and don't need to have both to join. It is a support and activities group for people with similar conditions to interact, network, participate in discussions, ask questions, share experiences, or to vent frustrations. I will also have guest speakers periodically.

This is a new group that will meet in Union City on the third Sunday of each month starting May 17. If you would like to learn more, please check us out

G.A.T.E. website:
http://www.meetup.com/Type1Diabetes-GP-SupportGroup/

I hope you will consider joining us for a future meeting.

Thanks,
Margaret
