Default Hello

Hello all, I'm new here. I was diagnosed with T2 23 years ago. I started out on pills only, now I'm on insulin, with a pump.

See Ya,
John

Hi There John:

Hey, 23 years with Type 2. That's a long haul. Good work! I'm surprised you started off on pills back then. Even today many Dr.'s just put their patients on diet, exercise and weight-loss. It seems to work for many.

Ya, the pills work for some Type 2's for many years. Some Dr.'s today put their Patients on Insulin right off. How do you like your pump? What type do you have? Welcome!

I love he pump, no more multiple shots per day, just every 3 days when it's time to change my set, and my insulin cartridge.

I have the Animas Ping pump.

See Ya,
John

Some, but mostly, I try to learn from others.

Hi John:

Oh you have the Ping. That one or the Omni is not available where I live yet. I'm Glad that the Ping is working Well for you though.

If you like, you could start a thread up in the Pumpers Section and tell us why you Love the Ping. We'd appreciate it for others who may want one. We've had several asking about which pump they should choose. I'm still in the state of "Should I or shouldn't I, get a pump".

Hi John:

I just noticed that you and Jaye have somewhat of similar circumstances. Gee, I'm sorry to hear of your heart attack. I'm especially Glad then, that you are doing Well on your pump.

Thank you for helping us with your information. My oldest Brother had many strokes and several heart attacks but I never knew exactly what happened since he lived farther away. I'm pretty sure that neither he nor my younger Brother understood the intricacies of Diabetes.
