Hi all, I am new to this forum, have been a TD1 since 1977 and just recently decided that I am going to try the Omnipod insulin pump. My numbers are usually very good but I am wanting to simplify my life maybe with a pump.

Welcome. This is a good place to hang out with other diabetics who are working on gaining good control of their diabetes. I hope the pump does for you what you are wanting. How close are you to getting the ball rolling on this?

Welcome! I just started on a pump this week, and I am very glad that I chose to get one. I was doing well on MDI, but am hoping that the pump will give me more freedom and control.

Have you started on the omnipod yet? Would love to hear how that goes for you!
