  My diabetes came from a reaction to a medication. Prednisone. I was on it so
much for my asthma. The doctors said that it screwed my body up so much that
even though I came off it my glucose levels still stayed high. (300-600) After
 almost two years on insulin I noticed that I kept dropping low. The doctors
titrating the insulin down until I was off it completely. I still watch what I
 eat. I don't drink sugared soda or juice. But to this day even with my crazy
schedule I am still running normal blood sugars. (The Lord be praised!)

What happened that you don't need insulin anymore? You have Type I diabetes? I
am a Type I, 70 year old, and real curious.

I am no longer on the pump due to not needing insulin anymore. 
I have several boxes of both Medtronic Paradigm reservoirs and the Paradigm
silhouettes (43 in tubing)
If anyone could use them I would not mind sending them to you. If you could
help out with shipping it would be nice but not required.
