We did an insulin pump trial with saline and it went fine. Once you are approved and get your pump and ready to start pumping how many times and for how long do you meet with the CDE. For how long do you do every 3 hour blood glucose checks as you transition from shots to pumping. Any other transitions tips? I have read parts of walsh's book I need to get that out. We were approved for the cgm too, should we just get that going too or will we drive ourselves crazy with all the new technology. The endo thought we should wait to Cgm but I think it would be great to have to adjust basals. We are not tech savvy but willing to jump in and give it 100%. We decided to go with the minimed. Any tips appreciated and thanks.
