November 2002 I received my first insulin pump. I have been so happy not to have shots and to be able to sleep in! The best part about it is that my A1C went from 9.0 last summer to 7.7 after only 2 months of being on the pump! I was soooo happy. I am trying to get it even lower. My biggest problem is PIZZA! I love pizza but I can only have it once in a while. I have been working with the Dual Wave bolus to find the best dosage so that I am not high all night after eating my favorite food....PIZZA!

I use the Paradigm Insulin Pump from Medtronic MiniMed with the Quick-serter Infusion set.
