Hello,

Thinking about going back to Joslin in Peoria. Type1 for 21 years. 61 years old. Harder to control now and need more help.
I won't mention names, the young lady got me started on the medtronic pump and off to a good start. When I wanted to go
beyond the basic however she didn't seem too keen on looking at my printouts. Is Dr. Sfeir the person to talk to and is
he up to the challenge? I live near Pekin.
Thanks a million
Sid
