WELL I AM A SHORT TIMER, IN 2000 FOR 3 DAYS I WAS A TYPE 1 FROM BODY SHOCK FROM BEING CUT ON, THEN IN 2003 I WAS CUT ON AGAIN, AN FOR THREE DAYS I WAS A 1 AGAIN. THEN IN 2005 I FOUND OUT I WAS A TYPE 2 AN THEY GAVE ME THE PILLS AN THEY DIDNT WORK SO NOW I TAKE A SHOT BEFORE I HAVE A BIG MEAL, WHICH LAST 3 HOURS, AN TWICE A DAY I TAKE A 8 HOUR SHOT, AN THIS SEEMS TO BE DOING THE JOB FOR NOW. THIS KEEPS ME BETWEEN 90 AN 140 WHICH IS GOOD..

It was sort of okay at first. The as my life got busier, with family, it became bothersome. The as age started creeping in it has become a real hassle sometimes. Now I am on a Pump and it has changed my LIFE!.. Maybe SAVED it..

I agree, it can be applied corectly with tracking and diet, and being able to adjust for Carbs takes the strain/damage of diabetes on your body
