insulin pump

Diabetes and Family Bonds
Jun 4, 2014 | 
Diabetes is a disease that has affected my family and me even before I was born. This chronic ailment has put my family through some scary times. Times that no one should have to face. Diseases like these affect far too many people of all ages. Seeing a loved one suffer and feeling completely helpless by not being able to take their pain away is the most disheartening experience anyone can go through. Sadly, this is a feeling I know all too well.
Have You Been Thinking About An Insulin Pump?
May 13, 2014 | 
Is your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride every single day? Do you feel unsure about what to do or how to bring your blood glucose levels down? Are you scared to go out and do things with friends or family because of the fear that diabetes brings you on a daily basis? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it is time to think about using an insulin pump to control your blood glucose levels. 

I have been wearing an insulin pump for many years and am here to weigh in on why I feel it is a good option for type 1 diabetics. To some, this option may seem to be overly extreme or a last resort to an unsolvable problem. However, it shouldn't be viewed this way. I am here to clear the air and answer a few questions about some of the common fears and concerns that scare people away from using an insulin pump.
