I talked to my doc about getting a pump last week. Two days later my insurance approved and I got the pump yesterday. Later today I have pump training.
Having been on MDI for almost 10 years and losing control over the years (last A1C was 8.9) I always resisted going on the pump because I don’t like the idea of being constantly connected to a medical device - I picture myself as a patient at a hospital walking around with a tube running into the arm and dragging the IV pole along. I thought Lantus was going to be as good as a pump, combined with low-carb diet. Easier said than done - I couldn’t do it consistently. The only reason I’m going on a pump is to see if the discomfort of constantly being tethered to the pump is offset by better control and A1C numbers.
I’ll post my experiences with the pump in a few weeks.
Meanwhile, I’m curious how long it took you to go from pump consultation to getting the pump.
