1. LOL I know I have said it before, but there is no way I woudl ever be separated from my pump or something like it. I have always said pumps are nto for all, but they are the best for me. I hope this time works well for you Frank.

    • It was very inconvenient being without it at times, and harder to manage BGs at certain times of the day. But overall I don’t regret doing it.

    Surprised that it went so well on the injections. Good though, it’s always good to not get into a rut, even with diabetes care. What works now might not work as well tomorrow and it’s always good to make sure and experiment (intelligently).

    I interviewed three pump users and non-users here: http://www.70-130.com/diabetes/pump-vs-injections/ As Rick said above, it’s not for everyone. At least not all the time.

    Frank what exactly is the blue range in the pump screens above? Looks like your target range…?

  3. Hi Frank,

    I’m on day 1 of my first ever insulin pump break since I started pumping 5 years ago, and it was nice to find this post. It feels really good today to be disconnected from “the machine” and so far today the Lantus is working well. The pen needles are much smaller and pain free, and not what I remember of injections. We’ll see what the next few days or weeks bring. Thanks for the post.


    • Hi Julie, well done for taking a break. It’s not an easy decision to make, especially when you’re jumping into unfamiliar territory. Hope the break is refreshing, and goes smoothly for you, however long it may last.
