Format: Paperback
Dr. Kaufman has done a remarkable job explaining how insulin pumps work and how to use them effectively. There are other books on insulin pumps, but this one explains things in the most easy-to-understand fashion without hiding the complexity from you. That's quite in achievement.

In particular, she walks you through how to set your basal rates (the slow drip of insulin your body needs to cover its natural needs), your insulin-to-carb ratio (how much insulin you need to match the food that you eat), and your correction factors (how much insulin you need to correct a high blood sugar).

The book also talks about continuous glucose meters (CGM). The key here is that CGMs are perfect for spotting trends. They help you understand what direction your blood sugars are going and how quickly. They're much less good for understanding exactly what your blood sugars are at a given moment.

The book ends with a review of the artificial pancreas project, which uses insulin pumps and continuous glucose meters to automatically manage blood sugars. In the last decade, the project has gone from "wow, this will never work" to "holy #@$, they are making progress!" Reading this section will put a smile on your face.

Considering that setting up an insulin pump has an enormous impact on your health and well-being, this book is an extraordinarily good investment. If you're hesitating due to spending a few bucks, don't. I also recommend the new 5th edition of Pumping Insulin by John Walsh which is available on his website but hasn't made it to Amazon yet.

I got this book on time and it was enjoyable to read. I have been a type 1 diabetic for close to 40 years and it was not only a GREAT review but inspirational. This book is brand new... and up to date. I realize now why I need to follow the guidelines so precisely to get good results. I only just got a continuous glucose monitor in October and I did not have a doctor at the time who even took patients with insulin pumps let alone CGM's I am very happy I read this book and will use it for reference in the future. Just to let you know I am very brittle and still am. Reading this book has not been an over night cure for being a Brittle diabetic, but now I can get information to give my New fantastic Dr. that his office can down load and I look smarter for reading this book because it helped me understand better what my doctor is talking to me about.
