Always remember you are the one with diabetes and you are the one in control. Advice is all they can give. try eeek dare I say fasting to get the basal right. Then re ratios weigh and monitor rather tedious but once done! Just make sure its a stress free week and no eating out. Boring but it works. I was only granted a pump because I had to prove that my control was adversely effected by my hormones which was agreed by the dietitian who had been carrying out research using mobile phone and carb counting.
