I'm 38 years old and have had Diabetes for 19 years.
I have been using a pump for 4.5 years. I have just upgraded from a
to a 508.
I am single and live in Nahant Massachusetts, a small town just North of
I work as a Chef and part time Culinary Arts Instructor. I also teach food
safety for the Mass Restaurant Association.
I lived a very active lifestyle for most of my life, but because of the
combination of diabetes and worsening Rheumatoid Arthritis I have had to
slowdown over the last 2-3 years. I still enjoy walking 2-3 miles per day
can and hope to return to skiing in the near future.
The insulin pump has been great for me. I am a patient at the Joslin
it has saved my life.
I have severe low blood sugar reactions peiodically that cause me to lose
consciousness and have convulsions. I t usually takes 2-3 days to recover
