RE: [IPk] Any advice?!



Hi Jenny

I have had my pump for 3 days now, and I feel fantastic, my bg's have
dropped from running 90% of the time at around 20-25 to now at 12-14, which
I know its early days, but I feel a lot more positive about my diabetes as
before I was not in control of it, so I gave up on it, with frequent
hospital admissions. There is a lot of work you have to put in with blood
testing etc, but its well worth it. My gp has today heard from our primary
health care about funding and things are looking very positive on that
front. For the first time in 5 years I feel in control of my diabetes, not
it being in control of me.

good luck

Sara

Hi all

I am waiting for a referral to Kings College Hospital
about pumps, having never managed to get decent
control through injections.

All the stuff I've read about pumps sounds so positive
and I was hoping that you can give me some honest
advice:

Does your control really improve a lot with a pump?
How long does it take to get used to the new system?
How do you choose between the different pumps on
offer?

Any comments gratefully received! Cheers, Jenny.
