I am really excited to say that I have been accepted into The Artificial Pancreas Study in Virginia. I absolutely lucked out because I live in Pennsylvania and my sister lives in Virgina only 30 minutes away from where the study takes place. I am also lucky because the lady said I was the last one accepted before closing the study. My first appointment will be tomorrow where I will learn more about it. What I know so far is that they will give me a new insulin pump to wear (which I will be able to keep at the end of the study) and a continuous glucometer. The study will last for six weeks and will also pay me a nice amount of money to do things that I normally do everyday. The study is to help them develop a bettter algorhythm for the artificiial pancreas so it is more flexible. I hope and pray that this will open more doors for me to lead to better health care.
I am looking to eventually move to the virginia area and I think this will help me to find now doctors or be accepted as a new patient down here. I just thought that I would share this good news will my fellow diabetic friends. i will keep you all posted and hopefully some of you will have some good news to share too.
God bless all,
