I've been back on the pump for 3 weeks now - and starting to experience the same problems as I did when I decided to go off the pump back in April for my "MDI experiment". Having issues with F-d up BG's in the morning (high) - and it's almost like I'm injecting water into my body with the BG readings I've been getting.
I've pulled out my trusty Pumping Insulin book by John Walsh - and of course - right there it says "Always seek the advise and guidance of your physician and health care team. No book can ever help you as much as they will". Easy phrase to type out, but to find an endo with pump experience or CDE is like looking for a needle in a haystack here in the part of Canada that I live in (let alone find one that I can converse with in English). I've blogged about this a few times and I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but it's starting to get somewhat annoying when all my American friends in D-OC beat their chests about their CDE's , etc. It makes me feel like a real whinner when I continually Tweet about the lack of finding someone!
So, I'm going to try to understand this book as much as I can (technical books aren't as interesting as the romance books I read ) and I've put in a plea for help to Animas Canada to see if they can find someone I can talk to and understand how to use this expensive piece of technology better. I have to admit, I did find my BG's better on MDI, but I found it a chore to constantly remember to jab and this is what I like about the insulin pump, if only I didn't have this roller coaster ride with my BG's! I just would like to learn how to use my insulin pump as best as I can!
Back to reading / highlighting and patiently waiting to hear from someone who can help me (I would sell my soul to be able to have an endo that completely understands pumping)!
