What About Insulin Pumps?

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.

    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.
