@tim – totally agree. MDI and carb counting gave me an A1C of 7.2 for the first time in years, but couldnt help with the underlying swings that the long term (Lantus) insulin just exacerbated. 1.5 weeks into having a pump, and it appears it’s removing/dealing with my 3am dip which I’ve had all my life and my dawn phenomenon, and does appear to be making it easier to deal with the hormone-induced swings as well.
MDI was a large step forward. Pumps are a jump further.
