I can hear your frustration. I am also a longtime T1, 50 years to be exact. I have been pumping for 10 years or more it sounds like your dr. gave you the pump and no education. Before I started pumping I consulted with a CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator). He taught me carb counting and other things to help make my pumping life a better one. The pump is a wonderful piece of technology but without the education it's hit and miss as far as bg controlis concerned. CDEs are all over the U.S here is a link to educators website where you can find an educator where you. live.http://www.diabeteseducator.org/
