"I tried MDI last summer. We went to Maui and I figured I would want to swim, surf, play in waterfalls, etc. I tried it at home for 3 days with the CGM in, flattened my basal in the pump to 0% and just pumped boluses figuring that would help smooth…"

Christopher replied to Karen's discussion 'Pumping and returning to MDI'
"I switch between the two regularly. I prefer MDI when at home - not having anything stuck to me, and two shots of Levemir give me near-perfect basal rates. I also use a Novopen Echo because of the 1/2 unit precision and memory function. When I…"

"I can not answer your question since I have always used MDI. I tried a catheter once and this experience was not very convincing. In my opinion it is very important that every pumper can switch seamlessly from pump to MDI and back. This does prepare…"

I finally talked her into it that day and she wanted Auntie Karen to do the front bike riding, but I was really messed up that day… Continue

We had many great beach vacations with her as she was always running circles around us when we walked the beach to make sure we were safe. She was a great dog and I will miss her. I saw her a year ago and she was struggling big time, but she still managed to bring me a toy to mess with her.…
