Update (02/08/24):

Thank you for the widespread interest in the 7th edition of Pumping Insulin with Automated Insulin Delivery. Authors John Walsh, P.A., Ruth Roberts, M.A., and Timothy Bailey, M.D., F.A.C.E. are incorporating significant advances in automated insulin delivery (AID) and DIY systems.

You will see PI7 in Spring 2024 with the latest information on AIDs and glucose management. Resource updates in this edition include:

  • the inner workings of different AID algorithms
  • which settings affect your glucose on each AID system
  • how to maximize glucose outcomes and safety with an AID system
  • steps to minimize infusion set issues
  • achieving expert and personal glucose goals
  • how to find your optimal total daily dose from your average glucose elevation
  • a comparison of meal sizing and carb counting for determining bolus doses
  • selecting optimal thresholds for alerts and alarms, when to use them, and when to streamline them to avoid alarm burnout

With all the advances in research and diabetes management, this edition is essential for healthcare professionals and those wearing an insulin pump or AID system. Over the weeks to come, look for teasers, excerpts, and exclusive content to keep you engaged and informed. We’ll let you know the availability once the book is published.

This up-to-date 7th edition of Pumping Insulin with Automated Insulin Delivery contains helpful theory, details, and thorough procedures designed to improve your life on an insulin pump or AID system.

    • Hello Andy,

      Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make the original release time frame. The book’s release has been shifted to early 2024. This decision was made to ensure the highest quality and most comprehensive edition possible, requiring some additional editorial adjustments. We will be updating this page and emailing those who joined the list above. We hope to have a more solid release date soon.

      Thanks for your patience.

  1. Just wondering how many pumpers use a reactive rather than the usual proactive approach to pumping insulin.
    I have Tandem t:slim X2 with Control-IQ.
    I almost exclusively only use Quick-bolus function and set my carb factor such that I give a convenient 4 presses for a usual meal.
    My pump stays put on my belt and it only takes a few seconds for me to assess all the metrics and deliver the required food or correction bolus and the timing of the bolus. I generally don’t really need to bolus before my meal and I can divide a meal bolus if necessary.
    The main advantage is the effortlessness involved with this approach and I am able to virtually eliminate hypos.
    I am 85.5yo and T1D for 61 years. TDD 22u. I am extremely brittle and also hypo unaward.
    Recent TIR 93%, GMI 6.4%, SD 1.5, CV 21.3, Median 6.9, Low 0%, Very low 0%, Very high 0%.
    So just wondering if this is a good approach.

    My pump stays put on my belt and it only takes a few seconds for me to assess all the metrics and deliver the required food or correction bolus and to decide on the timing of the bolus. I generally don’t really need to bolus before my meal and I can divide a meal bolus if necessary.
    I don’t count carbs and I don’t use the bolus calculator.
    The main advantage of this approach for me is the effortlessness involved and I am able to virtually eliminate hypos by keeping my TIR tending in the upper part rather than bordering on the hypo part.
    I am 85.5yo and T1D for 61 years. TDD 20u. I am extremely brittle and I would not manage without the pump. I am also hypo unaware.
    Recent TIR 93%, GMI 6.4%, SD 1.5, CV 21.3, Median 6.9, Low 0%, Very low 0%, Very high 0%.
    I am managing extremely well with this approach and couldn’t help wondering whether this reactive approach is accepted or perhaps discussed or considered in Pumping Insulin, the book by John Walsh and Ruth Roberts?
