Medic Alert Necklace is where I hang it! I agree with everybody else on the "easier" bit. The point is to eat what I want, but not to weigh 275 lbs like I used to. The pump also has improved my "logging" by keeping track of input/ output a lot better, even more with the CGM but the "delta" was probably more going from "none" to "some" than from "some" to "lots?"
Eat what you want just count your carbs and don't over eat.
Yes, using Omnipod and counting carbs religiously (well, ok, my wife does that, bless her.)
I'm type 1 since around 1973 (I can no longer remember); I don't like anything sugary and I've learnt not to like wheat products (common in the west, I guess rice products also in the east.)
The carb counting is the limiting factor. Non-diabetics can consume carbs that need almost infinite amounts of insulin; 1 US pint of ice cream, for example. Approaching 40 years of diabetes, most of it MDI, means I don't do that (except occasionally).
So I eat what I want, but what I want is cultural and my culture is diabetic.
