The book is full of information and quite technical, but that is what you need.

The fourth edition of PUMPING INSULIN has been updated to reflect the many positive advancements in insulin pump therapy.

This book is the BIBLE for Insulin Pump therapy. John Walsh, a pump user, and a Physician's Assistant and Certified Diabetes educator, offers invaluable advice and steps for finding your correct insulin basal rates and bolus/carb ratios. Very valuable steps are offered for fine-tuning your basals and boluses too.

For those considering the pump as a management strategy, PUMPING INSULIN helps you to determine whether the pump is right for you.

I highly recommend this book!

This is the only book you need if you are considering pumping, have received a new pump and are starting pumping, or are an experienced pumper and need help improving your regimen. Other books may be good, but this one covers everything in a detailed, no nonsense way, with charts and graphs, and worksheets where necessary. It is a must have for any pumper's library.

I read the book front to back when I first got my pump, but since then, I've gone back repeatedly for specific questions. The answers are always there! Well organized, good depth of information, and I enjoy the matter of fact writing style.

Format: Paperback
"Pumping Insulin" is an amazingly good book on insulin pumps. It contains clear instructions on how to adjust basal, bolus, and correction rates as insulin needs change. These tables are particularly valuable for parents of Type 1 diabetics going through puberty.

When my daughter got out of her honeymoon period, her A1C scores went from 6.6 to 8.7. "Pumping Insulin" gave me the information and tools I needed to bring her A1C back down to 7.4 in 3 months, despite further growth spurts.

One chapter has estimates relating total insulin requirements to approximate settings for Basal, Bolus, and Corrections -- while intended for "starting settings", this information works well for re-adjusting your pump's settings when everything is really off. The Basal rate checks are clearly described and tell you exactly how to adjust your pump settings. One chapter has suggestions on the lines of "if you are seeing this, try that".

Excellent, must-have resource for anyone pumping or planning to pump insulin to treat diabetes. Deals mostly with Type 1 but there is a section on Type 2 and many areas discussed apply to both types equally.

Even if you don't pump, buy this book. Insights on how to adjust your basals are priceless even if you use Lantus and Novo. I've never not found an answer to a problem that isn't in this book. Get it, read it, add years to your life.
