The regimen of MDI does act more like your body. You have the background insulin to work at keeping you level and you bolus with meals and for any corrections. It means typically more shots in a day but the control can be better and things can be a bit more flexible. It's a little bit of an adjustment if you're just to just a couple times a day but it makes eating and timing of meals a bit easier.

It's pretty amazing how fast you get used to test, treat, eat, and you won't even think about it. And the more I experiment the better I get at eyeballing carb servings wherever I go.
