I live in a city named JESI in the middle ITALY that is not so far neither from the Adriatic Sea nor from Rome!! I've been diabetic for almost 16 years, specifically I was diagnosed when I was 9! it's really good to share any kind of useful information among european people with diabetes! that surely makes europe look much smaller! :)
i think the UK was the best in terms of the care and support i got from my diabetes team. sweden and the netherlands were very good with the funding of the pump supplies, etc (the funds are scare in the UK)
now in France, I am having a nightmare. i came across an endocrinologist who was incompetent and forced me to come off the pump. little did i know that she actually didnt know how to consult a pump patient. though not sure, i think the experience with the pump in france is limited. had to come back to istanbul for a few days to be put back on the pump. and I had missed it so much! I will see if i manage to find an endo that is pump-literate/competent in paris.
but definitely despite the funding problems, the UK was the best among the places I have lived in.
how are things in Spain?
