Back on Track!

After a tough couple weeks my blood sugar finally leveled off yesterday. Instead of using the 12:1 ratio I had calculated with for the past month and 1/2 I'm now using a 15:1 ratio. My lowest blood sugar from yesterday and through the first half of today was 81 and that was after a great lift. Hopefully I'll be able to take inspiration from the guys playing at Oakmont this weekend to just keep grinding it out.

In other exciting news, I'm scheduled to get my Minimed 522 today! I absolutley cannot wait to start pump therapy and am really looking forward to it. Sometime next week I hope to post a full side by side comparison to illustrate why I went with Minimed over Animas. As soon as I have the pump in my hands I'll be calling Leigh over at the Berrie center to st up my first of two appointments to learn how to use the thing.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Good news about the pump. And do please let us know how it works out for you.

I'm going to get a loaner Animas for a while to try out. I'd like to compare it to my aging Minimed and see whether I want to switch to it. I was impressed by some of the thinking that seems to have gone into it.

On a completely different topic, have you looked at It's a social networking site for people with diabetes. I think you'd find it useful and informative.
