Ever wonder what it’s like to get your insulin via a pump? Tim at Shoot Up or Put Up shares his year’s worth of pump experience with the world. Tim must have type 1 diabetes. He lives in the U.K., so you’ll see blood sugar levels in mmol/l instead of the U.S. standard of mg/dl. To convert mmol/l to mg/dl, multiply by 18.

Excellent, informative and wonderfull update on pumps and pumping.
I am type 2 and not at point I want to go there but article extremely helpful.
No longer using dam glyburide/starlix pills but metformin and liquid insulin – small doses. Humalog Lispro.
Hi, Jim. Most of the pumpers around here see an endocrinologist. Most primary care doctors aren’t comfortable with the pumps yet.
Thank you for sharing this information. Since the day i stopped consuming sugar not only my diabetes is under control but also my health overall is in good shape. I choose natural sweeteners like Natvia http://natvia.com/. Also i stopped consuming alcohol completely. A glass of wine once in a while is ok though.
