I got my A1C yesterday after about 6 months into the pump. My ultimate goal is to hit 6.5, but I am pleased to say that for the very first time in 27 years, I have gotten down to a 7! The trick now is to make that be the worst number I get and keep getting better at this.
As excited as I am, I can't help but ask, what the hell took me so long? Why didn't I get a pump years ago when I still had 2 eyes? Well, I guess that is all water under the bridge and spilled milk at this point. I might have been a hard-headed slow learner, but at least I'm getting there now.

Yea! I had a pump for 15 years then began to have some serious problems with the changes the company made (led to a heart-attack - long story). I was on multiple shots for 2 years and returned to insulin pump therapy in January. My A1C is down to 7.3 and like you, I am having mental awareness like never before. Keep up the great work!!!!

Great results. Pumping is just awesome!..I was diagnosed in 1976 and didn't start pumping until 2011…kicking myself for having waited so long! IMHO, it's the way to go!

CONGRATS, silicone, on hitting the big 7.0! Please continue to the good work.
