Apologies if this has already been posted as a discussion previously, however I wanted to ask members who moved from giving themselves insulin shots to using using pumps - if they found it difficult to convince their doctor or endo to change? Also do you have any issues with using the pumps?
Changing to a pump doesn’t appear to be an option thats even come up with any of my health carers… however now that I’m 34 and recently struggling to keep good control (a lot more highs than lows), I really want to do something about it… however having a stressful job inhibits me from getting the results I want through manual monitoring and injecting.
Most blogs I’ve read give me the feeling that some countries appear to be more advanced and open to use of pumps, whereas here in Australia it only seems to be an option for older / more severe cases. Any one else have any views / opinions on this?
