Hi Richard,Hello! I was diagnosed with Type 1 in 1945 and have been very lucky since I have only a few minor complications. I have used very tight control and started pumping in June. Things are going well but I still have some highs and lows only not nearly as many as when I was injecting my insulin. Even though I am Type 1 exercise is a very important part of my control. I have insulin resistance and therefore I am a Type 1 with symptoms of Type 2, I am a "double diabetic". I have been using Avandia for 8 years for my insulin resistance. With Avandia and my pump I have very good control. I hope I can help in some way here. Please feel free to ask me any questions you want.
I very new here but I just have to say that I?m getting so hopeful for the future when I hear so possitive people like you. Keep going!
