I tried Symlin, Nicole. It is very hard to dose correctly, as well as adjust your insulin dosage for it. I found I was able to cut my insulin dose significantly but it did nothing at all for weight loss. Everyone is different in their responses to it, and some people have good luck with weight loss or BG or both. But it definitely takes awhile to figure out.

Nichole, there is even a group here with people who use symilin.
I personally have no experience with it and therefore am no help...

Does anyone use Symblin? I was put on it today but I wanted to know if anyone has seen results with it as far as glucose levels and weight go. Thanks!

Great article, Etta Amy; you might want to post it on the main forum so more people can read and comment (it's about the big business of treating Type 1).

Congrats Bill and welcome to the pumping world! My son who was diagnosed last year starting on the pump in late October and he really likes is better than the multiple shots per day.

Comment by Zoe on March 27, 2014 at 10:26am

Congrats, Bill! Don't hesitate to ask questions; the first few weeks are definitely a learning curve until you get everything tweaked.

Comment by Bill W on March 27, 2014 at 10:22am

Hello everyone. I am now officialy a pumper. Had my pump start this morning and everything went well. I am so glad I no longer have to take up to 10 shots per day.

Comment by NicholeW28 on March 15, 2014 at 7:11pm

I didn't feel any pain and I would not have even notice but when I took the tube out to put it on the cartridge and prime I noticed the blood on my pump and the counter and then realized it was all over the end of the tubing. I was a little shaken up and took it out. The tissue thing sounds like a great idea.

Re: bleeding, it is important to quickly spot blood leaking into your infused insulin. Need to replace that sucker ASAP.
