This is my first post on tudiabetes!
I wanted to get some feedback on a few different topics, hence my 'jam packed' subject heading LOL.
Alright, so I have been using an insulin pump up until about 1 month ago. I was on the pump for 18 months and had great control with my diabetes. Latest HBA1C was 6.5. I decided to stop using the pump for a couple of reasons - I was sick of wearing it all the time and having to think about what clothes I could buy that would accompany my pump AND I recently started trialling a high fat, high protein & low carb diet, so essentially ketogenic and was only blousing 1 or 2 times a day with the pump. I also train very hard, do lots of weight lifting and high intensity training (CrossFit).
Since transitioning back to the injections (Lantus and Novorapid), I have thoroughly enjoyed not wearing my pump and feel like a whole new person. However, I am finding it hard to get my basal levels spot on. And I find that if I am not following the ketogenic diet strictly, and decide to cheat a little of have something naughty, then it stuffs all my levels up for the rest of the day.
Wonder if anyone else has had this problem? Has anyone out there experimented with a keto diet? Has anyone transitioned off of the pump?
Hope to hear from someone soon :)
Thanks for caring,
