Hi, I am 31 years old and have had diabetes since I was 4 years old. I have never been able to find a regimen that actually w rks for me. I suspect I have an insulin absorption problem the the very least.
I have been on the insulin pump for several years and have not had much luck. I am allergic to the adhesive (i've tried tons of different infusion sets and 'remedies') and have to change the pump almost daily. It has had a very negative impact on my self esteem... It leaves nasty scars behind.
I live in a geographic area that has no endocrinologists (!!!!) and no experts really to talk to about this. I'm wondering if anyone has ideas or has tried lantus or any other options i might try? Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do if so?
