We recently received a copy of Pumping Insulin, the 5th Edition, which provides up-to-date information on how to use an insulin pump to achieve the best blood glucose management.
The book provides clear, logical steps on how to set up a pump test and adjust it. It demonstrates simple ways to find your total daily dose of insulin, basal rate and carb and correction factors for boluses, and how to use the bolus calculator to avoid stacking insulin and highs and lows. There is also information on carb-counting and over 300 carb percentages.
The fifth edition includes a new chapter on CGMs and pumps, and updated chapters on pumps specific to children and teens, pregnancy, exercise and type 2’s. It also includes over 185 useful tables, figures and examples, and explains how to use software downloads and log books to spot patterns and improve control.
This book has been called the “bible” of insulin pumping, and is a must-have for anyone who pumps.
The 5th Edition is available on Amazon.
