So what would happen if you hooked a non-diabetic up to an insulin pump?
Obviously, if you gave someone a shot and didn't let them eat, they'd go low. But what if you hooked them up to a pump, with basal settings that roughy matched what their pancreas actually generated, and had them bolus for meals?
I mean, wouldn't their pancreas just kind of take a vacation? In a non-D, the panaceas and other systems are quickly reacting to the glucose level in the blood, right? (I'm pretty sure pancreases don't count carbs.) So wouldn't they actually be fine on a pump? Especially since it seems like whatever mechanisms release extra glucose when needed also function better in non-diabetics. (Normal people don't go low during exercise, even if they just ate and thus presumably have lots of insulin on board.)
No, there is no practical point to this question... just idly wondering, and procrastinating some work....
