29 years old, diagnosed two years ago with Type 1 diabetes here. At diagnosis, my A1C was a gaudy 14.3 and while initially I enjoyed a honeymoon period with A1C's of 5.5, 6, and 6.5, since then, things have not been as easy. My last two A1C's have been 7.5 and 7.4 respectively and my blood sugar numbers have yo-yo'd to a frustrating degree. As a result, I Just started the pump (animas one touch) on the 29th of October and while my day to day numbers have been much better and much more consistent, my morning numbers have been disturbingly high. My overnight basal rates have already changed from .450 to .500 to .550, with no real improvement. I really am glad I got the pump, but it has not been as easy as I hoped. Such is the life of a diabetic, I suspect!
