Book review: Smart Pumping by Howard Wolpert

Smart Pumping : A Practical Approach to the Insulin PumpSmart Pumping : A Practical Approach to the Insulin Pump by Howard A. Wolpert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you are considering using an insulin pump to control your diabetes, or if you have recently started using a pump, then this is a really good book to read. It covers all the basics of pump use, and has good information covering all aspects of pump use. There are a couple of simple calculations for working out basal rates and boluses, but there is no difficult technical jargon or in depth explanations of chemical processes in the body to boggle your mind if you don;t want to know all the ins and outs.
I would say this was a simpler version of Pumping Insulin: Everything You Need for Success With an Insulin Pump by John Walsh which does get more technical and scientific.
This book can also be useful for longer term pumpers who just need a little bit of a reminder and review of how they use their pump.
