Hi I've been a member of TuDiabetes since it started, I'm known as Betty J. This year Iwas diagnosed with Gastroparesis after 53 years of living with Type 1 Diabetes. I would like to join your group for support. After months of information and re-education I have learned how to manage it. I don't know if being a pumper for years is to my advantage but my pump is very helpful.

I'm looking to connect with others who also have this condition and the way that they are managing.
