welcome Outlaw wow, you've lots of experience then. Are you injecting or pumping for management of your type 1? I'm sure you'll find this a great place to share and find support too.

I have used a pump for the last 5-6 years. I injected prior to that. I have found the pump to be a simplifying addition to my management of my disease. Just one more piece to a complex puzzle...

Glad to be here. When I became diabetic the doctor told my parents I wouldn't make it past 25. Thus, the Outlaw moniker...
