My husband is type one and has been for 25 years maybe a little longer! He went on the pump about 2 years ago and he would not have it any other way. Better control of blood sugar levels and feeling great!
He was very nervous at first too but it went away quickly! Had a few lows in the beginning but it is no where as bad as when he was taking shots! Learn what your insulin resistance is and you should be fine with a good diet and exercise!!!
Good luck and I wish you the best! I am sure you will love it as well!
Hiya, I have been diabetic for 25 years - started on the pump a year ago. It is a lot of work in the beginning, but soon becomes second nature. The only real highs I get right now is when there is a delivery problem with the insulin (tubing or something). Anyway, stay positive and you will love it.
I would be interested in hearing from other pump users about how they troubleshoot when highs occur.
