I love to run and stay active. I control my type 1 through a crap ton of cardio. the pump is nice but i don't like it on my stomach. and omnipods don't work. i want to go back to shots. i did shots from 7 - 14. also, i don't like having to explain my pump to girls. it's difficult to be intimate with it on. i feel like people understand what "taking a shot" means moreso than a machine with plastic tubing jarred in your stomach looks like
1. what will my regimen be on shots? how many will i have to take?
2. will i be able to eat low-carb like i do now on the pump?
3. how would i handle going out to eat with friends?
4. where would i carry my supplies and food?
Please fill me in on whatever i need to know.
Also, my primary care physician is a type 1 diabetic. he pushes me to wear the pump. should i get a referral to an endo? I want to do pens if possible.
