    I'm a Type 1 diabetic who depends on insulin. Since going on an insulin pump, I can't seem to "redistribute" my weight away from my midsection. I lift (mostly bodyweight) 3 x week and I swim 1-1.25 miles 3 x week.

    Any ideas?

    This shouldn't be any different to your basal bolus regime. Talk to your endocrinologist if it's an issue. I've had mates with issues commencing on their pumps, but the BSL control outweighs the other issues!
