"Im not crossfitting right now but have in the past. I would not recommend taking off your pump because later you'll not have enough insulin on board. Weight lifting tends to raise bs vs cardio seems to make it drop. There are many belts/cases…"

"Thanks everyone for all of the feedback/suggestions!! I think that being so new to a pump, I'm still getting used to wearing it comfortably, but I'll try both wearing it during work outs and disconnecting and see what works best."
