Hi Dennis, welcome! you are a 48 year veteran of type 1. In 2 more years you will be eligible for the Joslin 50 year medal. If you are not familiar with that look at the discussion near the top of the "Diabetes" forum.
I was diagnosed in 1945, when I was 6, and am very healthy. I am using the Minimed 522 pump and getting along very well with pumping. In 2010 I used the Dexcom CGM for 8 months, but my insurance no longer covers it so I had to stop using it in October of that year. If you would like to compare notes, just let me know.
