[IPk] Result !!!
Hi All ,
I've had my first HBA1c since starting on the pump
back in November - It was a stunning 6.3 !!!!! Before the pump it was 9.4.What a
Not only that, but I think I must be living
on another planet because I told my consultant that I wanted to use the pump
after the trial at Harrogate and he said yes .I jokingly suggested that he
give it to other people and he said that he was looking in to
getting a trial for pregnant women .I
then spoke to my diabetes nurse and dietician,both had only heard good things
about pumps and were shocked to hear of consultants refusing to put patients on
them ..My god there is hope out there .
I also approached the local health authority about
funding, I know its a bit previous but lets face it ,these things take time
.They stunned me by offering me tons of cash - only joking .They were helpful
and gave me advise about who to contact , who to write letters to ( My trust is
becoming a Primary Care Trust in April) and then proceeded to tell me if I came
up against a brick wall to contact them again .Can someone reassure me that
Grimsby is really is in England let alone on this planet.???
