    I am Type 1 diabetic and have been since 1965, so had diabetes for over 50 years. Initially I controlled my diabetes by injection and would you believe boiling a pan of water and dipping the needle on a very large syringe into the boiling water to sterilise it. Then moved on to multiple injections but luckily enough these were disposable. Three years ago I moved on to a pump and thats the best thing that has happened to me. However, now I am looking for a CGM machine that works with my pump and doesn't cost a fortune and is funded...........I think in my dreams.
