I’m 18 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes slightly more than a month ago. I’m doing multiple daily injections using Lantus and NovoRapid. My problem with injections is not pain or anything but the actual logistic side of things. For example it’s a bit awkward injecting yourself in public. I feel an insulin pump will make my life so much easier. However I have several concerns: 1) You change your cannula every 3 days so insulin enters in the same site for 3 days, I’m concerned about lipodystrophy. Anyone experienced this? 2) Can you sleep with the cannula attached to your hip or abdomen? For example when turning around? I’m so scared that I might turn at night and end up sleeping on my cannula which can cause bleeding? 3) Is the insulin pump widely offered? I’m so worried about not meeting strict requirements. I’m guessing the NHS doesn’t offer the new self-adjusting pumps but only the basic ones. 4) How often has your pump failed you? Bleeds, incorrect dosing etc 5) Do you remove your pump during international travelling?
