My names Katy and I've had diabetes for almost 23 years. I'm from canada and have no idea what the conversion is from my normal range of bg (between 4-7) to the hundreds i keep seeing in the forum.(I think americans usually use these) I am currently using humalog to maintain my a1c on the animas one touch ping insulin pump. I just started pumping six months ago so im still a noob. Im really here for support since i don't know many people with type 1 diabetes. I'm glad i stumbled onto this community and i look forward to having lots of diabetes and health related conversations. :-)

Welcome Katy! I'm type1 diagnosed 2 years ago. I'm also new on the pump, been using the Omnipod along with the Dexcom for a month now. Hope you enjoy the community here. It's a very helpful site.

Welcome Katy! I too am on an insulin pump and I use the Medtronic pump. I've been Type 1 for about 24 years now. Very nice and helpful people on this site.
