Welcome to Juvenation!!!!!
We'd love to hear more about yourself if you want to share. (: What pump are you on? Why's you make the switch?
Thanks to those who replied. Sorry for the delay. I'm learning the navigation here.
I have a Paradigm 522. I was using NPH and Reg. in multi injections and in good control 4 years ago. My Dr. died. The new Dr. was insistant on me going to Lantus, and since there were few endrocrinologists in the area, I finally gave in. Lantus didn't work for me. It lasted about 12-14 hours, so I needed 2 injections daily, plus the Reg., and Lantus did have a peak. Worst was my control was bad. Around that time I moved and told my new Dr. I wanted to try the pump. It works well for me. That's why the switch.
But, the Dr. moved about a year after that.and now there are no endrocrinolgists in my area. My family Dr. is good at listening so I get by with him.
