I have been "live" with my Ping (her name is Freeda) since November 8, 2010. I know it can take a few months to get the basal rates where they should be for the most optimal control, but I figured I would be closer by now. It has been 2 months and I am still staying over 200 most of the time. I'm fully enjoying being on a pump, and wouldn't go back to MDI (unless circumstances beyond my control forced it), but I would like to be closer to my target of 100 on a more consistent basis?
I admit, it may just be me and not always eating like I should. Maybe a "sponsor" could help me in that area. It's a thought.
