Finally, after years and years of trying to go on the insulin pump, I was able to get it. I still have only saline in it, but I am scheduled on July 7th to switch over to insulin. I just can't believe how convenient this is compared to the shots! I have always had a high A1C, but it took switching endocrinologists to finally get moving on a pump. I don't think I will ever go back to injections! I am really excited about started the pump full time. I'm interested to hear about anyone else's experiences with it! I've been a Type 1 diabetic for 14 years now and I have struggled for YEARS to get my blood sugar to a reasonable level. Just seemed like the doctors never wanted to help. They only yelled at me for the hundred things I was doing wrong, rather than pointing out what I needed to do right! Hopefully I will also be going on Symlin to help control my weight. That is another thing I have struggled with for years, and I'm hoping the combination of symlin and the pump will aid me greatly!
