I do find some help here from time to time, but I find it difficult to work out the levels - we in the UK measure in mmols so your numbers seem to be terrifying!!!! 9.9 is high - 120 or whatever is scary to me!
Also there seems to be a lot of talks on pumps here, and that is not for me. First of all a clinic in the UK only has funding for two pumps a year, and also because I am numerically dyslexic I cannot go on an education course because of all the numbers involved!

Ha, I went to Los Angeles many years ago after my stint at Camp America at Syracuse. My sister is now living with her husband and two boys in San Francisco - went there for the first time last January! They are enjoying it, despite the difficulties.

I am type 1 and very unstable
