    How about using a monitor like POGO Automatic when you take a pump vacation?

    • Yeah, that’s a good idea if you’re not going to be on your CGM. We didn’t say take off your CGM, we said take off your pump, so nice try! 🙂 But if you have to prick your finger, the POGO makes it a lot easier.

  2. Great advice for T1D pump vacation.! I never asked for Lantus. Been on approximately 5 pumps since 1980. From a heavy very large pump to my wonderful Tanden x2 with IQ control, there is a probability, very low. Everyone should know how to implement a planned or unplanned pump vacation& correct timing ! Thank you

    I’ve also had a pump since 1980. But was late to the CGM due to how unreliable they were initially. Now as long as you have a CGM my choice of insulin delivery is optional. I like to change it up for several reasons. My favorite was Tresiba and Afrezza. Amazing combo and best control I’ve ever had.

    Great idea, but then have to remember to get a prescription for lantus. Basically have to see your Endo to accomplish this before going on vacation. Emails asking for a new prescription from Endo usually doesn’t work – have to be seen. Sigh!
