    Hi everyone

    I’m a newbie to this board but an established T1 for 45 years, diagnosed at 7. I’m on Omnipod with Humalog insulin and have Libre sensors with a Miaomiao transmitting info to my Apple Watch. Loving all this tech, it’s making a massive difference to my control. Just waiting for latest HbA1c result, my target is 55 (was 59 last time).

    Looking forward to chatting with you all.

    Cathy

    Hi @Catucci, Welcome from an Aussie with 51 years, 7 years on an Animas pump. No CGM at the moment. Waiting to see what will happen here as Animas is being discontinued leaving me with the choice next year of Medtronics or Tandem. Now, I have to ask, is catuuci not an Italian biscuit,? or have a put my foot in my mouth about this ?
    Best Wishes and please keep posting !!

    Hi welcome to you too @Lisbon Lion 67 :)

    I suggest you start your own thread so you can get replies from lots of folk so am tagging @DCUKMod @Rachox @Jaylee to see if they can move this post of yours to a new thread for you.

    Hi Lisbon you are posting in someone else’s thread so it would be better for you to create your own thread - please let us know if you are ok for us to do it for you ?
