Hi I have been diabetic t. 1 for 31 years. Last year I was pregnant and now I have wonderful son. Before pregnancy my kidney worked fine ( no diabetic nephropathy complication) but last few weeks of pregnancy I had high blood pressure and albuminorrhea. My baby was born in August. Now I haven't albumin in urea but microalbumins still exist. So mybe someone knows for how long the kidney to regenerate?See More

Wow. In Hungary the National Insurance Fund pays for most of the insulin pump. We do not get any allowance, but the national insurance pays for 99% of the cost of insulin, 85% of the cost of test strips, 85% of pump and pump supplies for adults. I think for children they pay more.

They still do not pay for the sensors (and they are quite expensive here too). So I have not tried them, but I would like to buy it in the future.

I know that in Hungary there were a couple doctors that fought very hard to have the insulin pump available in Hungary. It's only been paid for by national insurance since 2006. I hope that they will start to support it in Poland too!!!

Not yet, but I would like to try it next year. Have you used it yet? Does the health insurance in Poland pay for the sensors?

Greetings Ewa...... thanks for your message!! I am happy to tell you that my eye is doing great!! The surgery went very well and I am experiencing a big improvement. It's not perfect, but it's 100% better than it was. I am so pleased. I have a wonderful doctor and for that I feel very fortunate. Thank you SOOOO much for your encouragement - I have been thinking of you often over the past few weeks and hoping that I have good results like you did. Just knowing how well you did made me feel so much more positive about my situation. I am working very hard to keep my BS in check and as tight as can be. I hope that I can avoid any further complications and that I can maintain the eyesight that I have right now. I hope you are still doing well and that your sight maintains it's good condition. Thank you again for your messages..... you have been a big help to me!! Please keep in touch! Lynda

Hi Ewa.... thanks for your comments and good thoughts. I had my surgery this morning and my Doc tells me that everything went fine. I have a bandage over my eye, which will be removed tomorrow morning.... I am hopng when my Dr removes the bandage that I will be able to see again! Like you, I had lost all vision in my eye. Fortunately, my left eye is still in good shape, so I could ge around pretty well. Were you able to see immediately after the bandages were removed from your surgery? I am thinking that it may take a few days.... Like you, I am most worried about the future of my vision will be, but I am going to do my best to keep my BS under tight control and hope that this will prevent further damage. Thank you again for your message - I will let you know how things turn out tomorrow! Best wishes from your friend on TuD, Lynda :)

Hi Ewa... I saw your post on the Diabetics with Eye Problems group. Seems we have a lot in common.... I will be marking 25 years with T1 next April. The first 22 were complication free, but now I'm dealing with some serious vision problems. I am having a vitrectomy surgery on Thursday and must admit I'm a little nervous, but it sure helped me to see that you are doing so well after yours. I hope that your vision continues to be good and that you don't have any further problems. Best wishes to you from the other side of the world! Lynda
