Has anyone started pumping during their honeymoon period? Currently I'm taking 6 units of lantus. Down from 20 a month and a half ago at diagnosis of type 1. Also, I've eliminated from a total dosage of 30 units of Novolog to 0. My numbers are great. Every test is 100-150 for the past 2 weeks. Oh yeah, I'm eating 270 grams of carbs a day (I'm pretty active though.)
My endo really is pushing for me to get a pump. In fact, I have a medtronic minimed and the corresponding CGM in my hands. It's just a matter of getting to her office to get started on it. That being said, I spoke with her physicians assisstant and she brought up the question. "Do you truly want to start this now?"
I never thought of that until she brought it up. I was just doing everything as my endo told me. So basically my question is, has anyone started pumping while they were in this period, or taking that small of an insulin dosage? If so, how were you're numbers? Were you running low? - That's my biggest concern - I'm a college student and am student teaching phys. ed. 2x's a week. I'm not always in a greatest position to test!
