When it comes to using diabetes technology like insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, we need all the help we can get — because figuring out the nitty-gritty of fine-tuning our basal rates, using advanced features like dual wave boluses, and troublshooting sick days and time zones ain’t easy.
We’ve previously brought you reviews of such fine works as Pumping Insulin and Beyond Fingersticks (by the ‘Mine’s own Wil Dubois!), and today we’re introducing a new guidebook from one of the country’s preeminent endocrinologists, Dr. Francine Kaufman, the Chief Medical Officer for Medtronic Diabetes and a leading endo for more than 20 years. Her new book, titled Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A User’s Guide to Effective Diabetes Management, is a slim, easy-to-read guide to these essential D-tech tools.
