I was on the pump for over a year and a half, but never got my A1c below 7.2%. I started having trouble with the infusion sites (rashes, etc) so I took a “break” from the pump that turned into more of an indefinite stay on MDI’s using Lantus/Humalog.
But lately, my Lantus is giving me some trouble with boluses and I miss the ease of bolusing on the pump (easier to remember, easier to calculate irregular carb ratios, and getting out of the whole number range). So the thought crossed my mind about using my Lantus as my basal and the pump for my boluses…has anyone done this? Did it work well for you?
I know I don’t want to go back on the pump full time…yes I understand that multitudes of people have great results with it, but I never could and it was always more trouble than it was worth. So I’m sticking with Lantus for my basal for an indefinite amount of time.
