I have become a pump convert!

I was at the DRWF wellness conference in Kent at the weekend, which was amazing both for me and the site. I spoke to a team from Accu Chek who were showing people their Insulin Pump. I always thought I would never think abou going on the pump mainly saying to myself I have good control and I love the flexibility of a prefilled pen. I also thought I would feel intrusive with something attached to me. The first thing that got my attention was the level of flexibility of the pump, it can administor the insulin in many ways depending on how you are eating, you can also have settings for exercise. I then wore one for a couple of hours, obviously with no insulin, at first I new it was there but after about 30 minutes I completely forgot.

The insulin is controlled by your testing kit, all you need to do is enter the amount of carbs you eat – this I know because the DF Diary app tells me! Now that I have looked at the pump I think it would give me better control. One main issue for me is having a second baby, as the first was no doddle.

I am meeting my DSN on Thursday to discuss in more detail. I will keep you informed and please let me know what you think about the pump.

Until next time
