OK so I’m looking through everyone’s profile and I’m seeing most of you all are on the pump. I still take shots exclusively, but I’m starting to feel very dinosaur-ish. I’ve had Type 1 for 17 years now, so I guess I’m pretty set in my ways.
Is there anyone out there like me who still takes shots and plans on sticking with it?
I personally don’t mind shots. In fact, I think I would prefer to take multiple shots rather than have that pump on me all the time. If I can get good readings with my current regimen, is there any reason to start pumping?
But I will be the first to admit that I need to have better control. Every year seems to get more and more brittle for my diabetes. If a pump will help me get my A1C down this year then I’ll proudly wear one.
And yes, I’m still waiting for Apple to come out with the iPump. I don’t think it will happen soon enough, so let me know what is the latest and greatest in insulin pumpology.
Thanks and Happy Sugars.
