The first of next month will make me 20 years of being diabetic. I have been very fortunate that I haven’t had a bunch of diabetes related health problems. I have a couple of normal things like PCOS and bi-polar disorder. I am very thankful that I have been this lucky.
I have been thinking alot about getting a pump. My blood sugars are pretty well under control. They are no where near the perfect levels that my GP wants to see. But I think going from like a 13 A1C to a 7.2 shows great improvement. And I have had roughly a 7.2 A1C for about two years now.
I am just curios how others manage their diabetes. Both with and without the pump. I am really looking for ease of use and the ability to feel a little more normal.
I still have to do some research. I have lots of ideas of the functionality I would want from a pump but I just want to make sure if those things are possible.
I would appreciate anyones input on this subject matter. Tell me the pro’s and con’s of the way you manage your diabetes. Thanks everyone and goodnight.
