    Hi Everyone :) my name is Brittney & I am new to this thing! It's pretty cool & fun to learn more about Diabetes. I am 34 & am a Type 1 Diabetic & have been for 21yrs. I have been on the insulin pump for 5yrs & would never,ever go back to shots! :)

    Hello there I'm type one since 1988 and am 40 yrs of age. I've been taking insulin by needle and was thinking of trying out the pump. My a1c levels have been 6.0-6.4 consistently. I'm trying to eliminate the lows, I always try to be perfect with my readings.
    Please tell me how my life will be better with the pump.

    Brittney, I'm type 2, but have heard of the pump. I'd also like to know about how the pump is good. Or anyone else who reads this, maybe you can help.

    We have about the same time line. I just started on the pump though and I still have some high readings. Does it get better and what do you do if you are all dressed up in a fitted dress Lol
