"Hello everyone, I have my 3 months check up with my endo in a few weeks (fingers crossed for a good A1C... although it has to be better than when I was diagnosed). Anyway, she wants to discuss an insulin pump and was wondering how members felt about…"

"Welcome, Mandy. I agree 100% with Joe_h on the running shop recommendation. Most good stores will be able to put you on a treadmill, analyze your gait, and put you in a shoe that will work for you. Plan on replacing shoes every 300-500 miles or so.…"

i wouldn't call myself quite a runner-- i'm really slow! but it's been strangely rewarding to train for this half marathon-- it's the applefest in hollis, nh! tomorrow i run 12, and then i am basically going to taper down until the big day!
it's nice to meet someone else who was recently diagnosed... i have just celebrated my 2nd diabetes birthday! it's been quite the learning curve. how are you doing? your a1c is awesome... if only mine could get into the 5s!

Hi Andy,

I can't believe you were diagnosed in Jan and your A1C is already 5..... what was it at diagnosis? Mine was over 12 and it took several months to get below 7. Sorry about your dad. I think it must be a completely different experience to be diagnosed in 07 - my endo is already talking about a pump running off of a continuous blood glucose monitor. I only know one other diabetic (acquaintance, really) and it is strange - but this site helps a lot.
