"I can do this with just the pump. I am hypo unaware and it was much worse when I was doing the mixing insulin regimen. The pump improved my management and in fact reduced the number of hypos. It is important for folks with pumps to learn how to…"

"The way to be safe should be to have flat BG, not to have elevated BG. It's been my experience that I can do this with a pump and CGM."

"Also, there is a trend to push people on a pump to lower and lower A1Cs, in some cases, to achieve, 'the lowest A1C possible.' This increases the incidence of hypoglycemia. Be cautious, duckatect, you are stating that you have an insulin…"

"NO!! Horrible advice. Pumps are not VERY dangerous. They are no more dangerous than any other means of administering insulin. Stupidity, carelessness, negligence -- these things are dangerous. They can kill you with insulin no matter how you get it…"

"I was on shots for 25 years and have been on a pump for 12 years, and I can't see how pumps are most dangerous than shots. I had much worse lows on injections. Hypoglycemic unawareness as a side effect? I don't think so. I would definitely…"
