Ruth, just saw your question about symlin in the pump. Don't know how long ago you posted it! I did try it in the second pump, and it worked fine. The very low basal required had no effect, and a "7u" bolus (if I remember right) worked fine with a meal.
But, i found having 2 pumps hanging off my belt to be a PITB, so I stopped. I might try it again, as I keep forgetting to carry those stupid pens with me.

I always wondered whether it was as important to avoid lows as it is to avoid highs. It seems like erring on the side of low is the better choice.

Oh, but my doctor did write a letter of medical necessity to HPHC prior the approval. Perhaps you could request that from your Dr? It cannot hurt to try, right? I have heard great things about HPHC and their coverage for CGMS.

Hi!
I do not think that my HPHC plan is the independence plan. That term does not sound familiar to me. I am sorry ;o(
