I agree with the others. I started on the pump a year and a half after my diagnosis. So I had to learn how to manage diabetes with Lantus, THEN learn how to manage with a pump. While the basics are the same, there are some important differences and a lot more that you can do with the pump. If you are motivated, it might be good to learn the pump right away. You need to learn about carb counting and basal rates anyway!
The reason that I didn’t start was that I didn’t like the idea of being attached to a machine and having a visible sign of my diabetes. If I had known how much easier it would be to control things on the pump, then I would have started much sooner! That being said, not everyone loves the pump-- some people are able to control well with injections.
The only question I would have is: if you are still in the honeymoon phase, can you have good control with only shots for now? I know some diabetes start on only one shot a day. Perhaps a c-peptide test (from your earlier blood work) could reveal how much insulin your body is producing. But good control could make the honeyphase last longer (at least some argue this).
In the end, the decision should be yours! There is a lot to learn now, but there will be many people to help you. If you feel ready, then I can’t think of any reason not to start! The process will take a while anyway, deciding which pump and getting insurance to cover it!
