Well I went to the Endo Tue. after wearing the Pump for about 3 months and CGM for about a month. went a week before my endo vist to do all the blood work. BOY was I surprised when the Doc cam in to chat. my last results was in one hand and the new one was in the other. last A1C was 13.8 <---- not good.. the new one was 8.3 <--- grinning from ear to ear. Man they tested for everything cholestorol was half of what it was before. and everything else she tested for looked great <--- her words. I have even gained some weight I now weigh 151.5 lbs. never seen those numbers before 135 to 140 was about my normal. So i guess the pump has done very well for me. I love not having to stick myself anymore and with the cgm it has reduced my finger sticks we have the pump adjusted pretty good and now the CGM is within 10 to 15 points of my finger stick. Just found out yesterday the my insurance is not paying for all my pump supplies. so i am going to have to find some extra cash to make up the difference, a small prive to pay to live a more normal life. I really dont think that the people who work for the insurance companies realize what a pump means to a type I. I think they take living life for granit, I guess if we turned their Pancrease off they would look at life a little different. Had some issues with the CGM getting the tape to stick to me, after a few trials with some other tape. I found that 4 plan o Band aids work real good they stick good and hold the CGM down so I don't catch my clothes on it and pull it out. Day 6 with the CGM in place and counting, still feels comfortable at the 45 degree angle on my stomach.
Well i have said enough for now Hope all have good BG levels and enjoy life to the fullest.
