This book was required reading for me from my Pump Educator and it is such an awesome book. I learned so many things from this book about regular diabetes management that I had never heard of before as well as so much preparation for getting my pump. I know this book will become my go-to place as I finally get my pump and learn to use it. The information is clear and easy to read, flows really well and explains so much in such detail without being overwhelming. I would also recommend for any other diabetic who wants to learn a bit more about their own diabetes management with insulin.

My nurse practitioner recommended this book for me. I am a fairly
new pump user and she wanted me to feel comfortable making adjustments. The book is very well written, and easy to follow for
any lay person.

Great pointers on how to fine tune your insulin pump! Sept. 12 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The fourth edition of PUMPING INSULIN has been updated to reflect the many positive advancements in insulin pump therapy.

This book is the BIBLE for Insulin Pump therapy. John Walsh, a pump user, and a Physician's Assistant and Certified Diabetes educator, offers invaluable advice and steps for finding your correct insulin basal rates and bolus/carb ratios. Very valuable steps are offered for fine-tuning your basals and boluses too.

For those considering the pump as a management strategy, PUMPING INSULIN helps you to determine whether the pump is right for you.

I highly recommend this book!

THE Insulin Pumping Bible May 7 2007
By ~Antonio Dominion - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the only book you need if you are considering pumping, have received a new pump and are starting pumping, or are an experienced pumper and need help improving your regimen. Other books may be good, but this one covers everything in a detailed, no nonsense way, with charts and graphs, and worksheets where necessary. It is a must have for any pumper's library.

Excellent insulin pumper's reference manual Oct. 24 2007
By Susan C. Cox - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the book front to back when I first got my pump, but since then, I've gone back repeatedly for specific questions. The answers are always there! Well organized, good depth of information, and I enjoy the matter of fact writing style.

Great how-to on adjusting basal, bolus, correction Feb. 1 2008
By Margaret Helen - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Pumping Insulin" is an amazingly good book on insulin pumps. It contains clear instructions on how to adjust basal, bolus, and correction rates as insulin needs change. These tables are particularly valuable for parents of Type 1 diabetics going through puberty.

When my daughter got out of her honeymoon period, her A1C scores went from 6.6 to 8.7. "Pumping Insulin" gave me the information and tools I needed to bring her A1C back down to 7.4 in 3 months, despite further growth spurts.

One chapter has estimates relating total insulin requirements to approximate settings for Basal, Bolus, and Corrections -- while intended for "starting settings", this information works well for re-adjusting your pump's settings when everything is really off. The Basal rate checks are clearly described and tell you exactly how to adjust your pump settings. One chapter has suggestions on the lines of "if you are seeing this, try that".

Excellent Feb. 14 2007
By Mendel - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent, must-have resource for anyone pumping or planning to pump insulin to treat diabetes. Deals mostly with Type 1 but there is a section on Type 2 and many areas discussed apply to both types equally.
