    Hi, type 1 diabetic. I'm currently on novo rapid and levmir. Considering the pump, anyone here who has it that has improved their lifestyles?

    Totally.. More pain... But great gain..

    More pain...
    More testing than when I was on mdi.
    More things to get right
    More to think off when going away...

    Great gain
    Levels more level, hba good
    Retinopathy gone
    Nobody knows I'm bolusing...Fantastic to be needle free so to speak
    To me I'm just so much more 'normal'-largely due to rhe remote my pump has.
    Got rid of DP.

    Benefits far out weigh the downsides..
