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!
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".
