My Story:
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1966. In the 70s I was told I had protein in my urine and that I would be on dialysis soon. I eventually did end up on dialysis but not until 2001. My cousin gave me a kidney in 2002 (on her birthday!). During the year on dialysis I did both hemo and peritoneal dialysis so I have experience with both modalities. After my transplant I started pumping with a Paradigm pump. In 2008 I had a pancreas transplant and have not required insulin since April 27th, 2008. I still test but now it is for fun!
