    Well for 5 years I've been over 8. Touched 10 once! and Oct 07 8.7. After being on the pump since January my result is a perfect 7.2 woohoo.

    After having trouble with retinopathy for the last 6 years this is a major relief and hopefully marks a turning point for this too.

    For anyone struggling with control on MDI and getting fluctuating BG readings, even if your HBA1c reading isnt too bad, I would recommend going onto a pump asap to protect yourself from complications like those I've been having over the last few years. When things go bad, its rubbish! Dont underestimate the damage you will face.

    Gotta say I feel fantastic.

    Thanks to those who have helped me get to grips with the pump too.
    Paul

    Well done Paul :D

    Now that you are using Apidra in your pump you should see much better control day to day over your bg levels.

    Its my guess but when you next have your hba1c done you will be a bit lower still.
