Hi everyone , I'm new to the pump and had a ??? Some of you may have an answer for me … Say I'm having a low of about 66 . I decide to have a meal to get my sugar back up . So my question is do I add my blood glucose # and the # of carbs in my meal add this info to my pump and then take the suggested bolus or do I skip this whole process since I was having a low ????? Thanks …

Good for u! Our medtronic trainer was awesome! We've had the pump for about 2 months now. I still text her sometimes lol

I was told to have the 15 gram quick carb snack without bolusing. Then if ur ready for a real meal count meal carbs(say 45)and Bolus using the BG of 66 and carb count of 45. If that doesn't make sense just think of it this way - Don't ever skip Bolus for more than 15 carbs even if ur low because u will go high quickly
