Re: [IPk] RE Treatment

Dear all,
This letter has yet again given me inspiration, i have been diabetic for 
just under 20 years now! Well i am a trained nurse at the moment working in 
medicine.  But my diabetic control is not as good as i would like it to be. 
Particularly due to my unsociable hours which the job entails. My average 
blood sugar was up this year not excessively but enough to worry me and i 
get hypos with sometimes no warning symptoms.  I have previously asked at 
clinic about pumps but with no answer except we don't really support them 
here.  So how can i get help both financial and support at achieving better 
control because i want to continue the next 25 years with no complications 
if at all possible! So anyone any ideas would be helpfull!!!

Nights and earlies and lates play havoc with my control!

Speak to you all soon,
