Tell us more about you (optional)
I am 39, and very healthy, I am dedicated to working with my pump to achieve the best control for my T1 diabetes. However, after 6 months on a pump, I have the worst control I have ever had. My nurse said I had gastroparesis (tests proved NO), then I had celiac disease (NO) so now it's that I just am not meant to be on a pump. I am devastated and hope to find some answers here so that I can stay on the pump if possible.

Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
