    I'm really sorry to hear of the issues you're experiencing.

    I hope that you qualify for a pump and that you manage to get your D under control.

    Good luck to you!

    Hello @totsy sorry to hear of your health issues.

    Yes a pump would give you better control, it takes some time to get the right adjustments but if you're struggling with maintaining good control then it will ultimately have great benefits in being able to make more adjustments and to monitor your control, I wish you luck :)
