glad to hear you are considering the pump
Have you had DM for a total of 10 years, or longer than this but the good
control only being for the past 10 years?
What regimen were you on before?
Too many people in " later life" are on old fashioned, twice daily premixed
insulin. If thats what they want then fine. But I think often they are not
offered alternatives due to ageism or apathy on the part of the medics.
With the correct approach pumping will certainly improve control and lend
complete flexibility eg when to eat, how much to eat,whether to eat at all
Where are you living. Is there a pump friendly clinic?
