"I have a reply similar to Alan's. I learned so much from being on the pump that when I'm on MDI, I get good results simply by trying to mimic the basals, etc., that I learned on the pump. I give myself an awful lot of shots on MDI to get…"

"It's possible to get very good control with either MDI or the Pump. The Pump has some distinct pluses that make the job easier. Before when I was on Injections, I was having frequent severe hypos. That was my sole reason for getting a Pump. My…"

"Our first few months were difficult, but yes, it has gotten better -- a lot better. I don't think I could contemplate going back to MDI at this point. His control is greatly improved. Best a1c we ever had on shots was an 8.1; current a1c is…"

"I agree with jrtpup, if your basals are set right, there is no reason you have to keep eating regularly to keep from going low. I also agree that Pumping Insulin is a must, as well as reading through your pump manual. I would work on getting your…"

"Actually, with a pump, you should be able to eat whenever you want, and not eat when you don't want to. Your basal rate(s) are meant to keep your BG at a good, steady level with or without food. Boluses should take care of food. Do you have a…"

Ive been pumping for less than two months but it feels sooo much longer than that. I keep getting lows at work . I hate changing it , finding places to put it. I feel annoyed with it and honestly prefere MDIs which from what I gather most people are psyched about the insulin pump. Ive been diagnosed diabetic for little over a year and a half. Maybe its that I haven't been diagnosed diabetic very long and am stil adjusting? I'm frustrated cause I keep going low at work. However , on MDIs my…See More

Welcome Dairrai!
I'm still pretty new to TuDiabetes, but I can tell you first-hand that I think you'll find this site filled with positive energy and excellent information. All you need to do is look around and make yourself at home...if you have any questions, there is always someone to help. I am personally willing to do whatever I can to help newly diagnosed people adjust...I've lived with type 1 for nearly 45 years and been through quite a bit. I have a few "tricks of the trade" to deal with things easier. So I'm here as is everyone else if you need them!
