Hello, I’m John and a Type 1 diabetic, diagnosed 20+ yrs ago. I’m on the t:slim X2 & Dexcom G5 now. Struggled with MDI and lots of ‘teststrips’ per day as a ‘Bluecollar’ worker, but retirement & Medicare now allow the luxury of the pump & CGM. Hate being ‘tethered’ to the pump by the infusion tubing (which catches on Everything!), but hopefully I’ll get better A1c #'s over time…

I just found this site, looks interesting. I’ll soon be 75 and have had type 1 since 1961.
I use a Minimed 670 and just starting with a Dexcom G5.

Hi, let me introduce myself, I’m Tyler, been a type 1 diabetic for 35 years. I also was diagnosed with kidney failure about 3 years ago. I live in Illinois. I use Tresiba and Novolog pens. Been through a lot in my life, including being in a coma, but always looking to learn. If you have any questions about type 1 diabetes or even dialysis, feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to answer whatever question you have.

Hi folks, I’ve been type 1 for five or six years now.
I’m hoping to pick up some wisdom and get better at controlling it :slight_smile:
