I really would like to see this exchange be more active. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can make this happen since the old format will probably never come back? I think when the new format took place that us Type 1's were hurt even more.View Thread
I started pumping with the Animas 1250 just over three years ago. My only regret is that I waited over 40 years to start. I find taking care of my diabetes is so much easier and more convienent. My A1Cs have never been so good! The freedom is great...no more having to eat and I love being able to get up in the mornings when I want to!! Good luck and let us know how it's going.View Thread
I'm a pumper with the Animas 1250. And I use the Dexcom 7 when I can afford to buy the sensors. The Dexcom has saved me from some bad lows since I am very hypo unaware. The pump has made life so much easier and living with diabetes so much more convenient.
Doug, I hope you can figure out someway to help with the cost of your supplies.View Thread
