    Especially on nights like last night, when we had Indian food for dinner. Extended boluses, temp basals, and any combination of the 2 don't quite cut it. I need that gradual build up of insuiln action that I got from NPH. It goes so well with Indian food (and Chinese). I suppose I could check every hour and give slightly increasing boluses, but what a pain - moreso for her than for me. NPH let me kind of "set it and forget it." I do like the pump, but I think I must be in a small minority of people who wouldn't mind going back to injections if we had to.

    you could still do a shot of NPH when you have those sorts of foods. There's no reason why you can't have both. :)

    I thought about it briefly, but I couldn't bring myself to approach her with it. I do still have a stash in the fridge though.

    I am hanging on to our bottle too. At least until it expires. It has a useful aspect that I miss with the pump.

    I love my NPH

    A lot of folks on here think we're crazy using NPH. But I agree with you - it has unique things it can do, once you get to know how it works. DD's still using it to cover her lunches at school.. :)
