    Have been on the pump for 2 months now and highly recommend it, takes a while getting use to it but it has totally changed my lifestyle, it has made things alot easier to manage and my blood sugars have improved dramatically!!

    I have been usng the pump since the past 2years. I also did a lot of introspection before switching over to it. But now I feel that was the best decision I have ever taken. My hba1c levels have come down, my weight is perfect and I have so much of freedom about when to eat and when not to. Also, I kindof like the look of the pump. It gives a cool look;-)
