Speaking of Vacation...

Here's a vacation tip for pumpers: as we take it off Cassie at the pool, we give her a small bolus to offset some of the insulin she'll miss from her basal infusions. We've found that it helps smooth out her blood sugar numbers over the course of the day.

During a week away at the beach last year, our good friend, Nicole switched entirely from the pump. She replaced her basal infusion with Lente insulin and gave herself humalog injections after meals or high blood sugars.
