Every person wishing to join one of the Insulin-Pumpers mail lists must submit a member profile containing your name, e-mail address, and a brief description of your experience with the pump, or interest in pumping insulin. Your profile will be reviewed by the list manager and forwarded to the membership after it is approved. The example below is not a template, so please feel free to elaborate or change the format as you see fit. At a minimum, please include your name, city or region (i.e. San Francisco Bay area), the number of years you have had IDDM and any serious complications with which you have some experience that may be useful to others. Many members have included their phone and fax numbers as well. Try to keep the description brief, under a page.

I've been using a MiniMed 506 for the last year and a half 
with Humalog for the last 6 months.  I use 30-35 units a day 
with a ratio of 1 unit of insulin for 11 grams of carb.  
I was diagnosed at age 12 and have had diabetes for the last 
15 years.  Since going on the pump, my hbA1c's have gone from 
8.1 down to 6.9 (whoopie), and I love the freedom from the snacks.
I like to bike and swim and participate in a regular exercise
program.  None of the other members of my family are diabetic
(I have a daughter 7 and a son 4) and everyone is very 
supportive. Oh, by the way, I live in Detroit, MI.

Please feel free to add any other information or experiences you have had to your profile that you consider pertinent to your particular situation and that may assist other pumpers. (i.e. diabetes complications, treatments, etc...)
