  1. Have you ever heard of anyone going to one of those “Biggest Loser” type weight loss “camps”? I am very interested in participating in one of these camps but I use an insulin pump and have a lot of trouble undoing the benefits of exercise by lows. I was wondering if any of these places have more advanced dr support? I’m not having a lot of luck searching on-line.
