"I was diagnosed at age 32, initially as Type 2 by GP, then Type 1.

"Hi April - I had started out at the Diabetes America clinic in Clear Lake, which then closed. I moved to the clinic in Pasadena, where I met my current doctor. She has just left the clinic, but has started her own clinic up in the med center. I…"
"I've been using the Omnipod for 4 years this month. I used a Minimed tubed pump before that and was only on shots for about 3 months post-diagnosis until I went on a pump. The omnipod makes me actually forget I've got diabetes most of the…"
