    Wow @cherylt1d that is fantastic! I hope I have the same success, my HBa1C came back at 68 pre pump, I am looking forward to testing it again in 3 months!

    Initially I was over the moon @cherylt1d, because my bloods were suddenly perfect! However, that was short lived and evidently due to the honeymoon period!
    I am now in the frustration:( period, and those perfect results are proving difficult to find. I must remember it is going to take time to find the right basal rates and ratios, but I am not very patient and find it hard not tweaking on a daily basis!
    However, on a positive note, I can honestly say I love my insight pump:). I must not forget the erratic results I was getting on MDI, and although I am only 3 weeks in I am in MUCH better control. Christine x
