Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since I was on here, and I honestly don’t remember how to search for specific topics in older posts… Hope you can bare with me here.
So anyway, I’ve been wanting to get a pump, mostly because injections hurt a lot, my whole stomach is just a big bruise right now, and I get suuuuper anxious every time I need to inject, but also because I’ve been ignoring high blood sugars during night time, just because I don’t feel safe injecting a needle in the dark (I’ve had multiple nights this summer where I was at 16-18 the whole night through…).
Buuuut I still take veeeeery small amounts of insulin, and I’m not sure if a pump can do that? I’ve heard that older pumps didn’t work with small amounts, because the insulin got stuck in the tubing or whatnot, but I have no idea how these new modern pumps are.
I only take about 15-20 units per day (basal included).
I do feel like the ability to dose 0,1 units would be SUPER beneficial for me as well, since I need so little insulin. Sometimes, even 0,5 units is too much, but if I don’t take anything I will be high.
So yeah… What do you guys think? Would a pump be good for me? I have one friend who says she thinks a pump would be THE BEST for me, and I would really love to have one, but I don’t know that much a pumps…
Anyway. Hope you’re all doing good, and keeping safe! <3
