YEAH!!! CANT WAIT TILL THEN!!! im soo happy caz itll be much easier nd hopfully less painfull. who hear has a pump nd who has the pen, or do u have the same ol' needles? tell me ur diagnoses story <3 ~nat
I use pens.. WAY EASIER!
My son was dx a year ago, and just switched from syringes to the OmniPod pump last month. Despite a challenging adjustment period (lots of highs), he way prefers the pump, and so do I. A Pod change every three days only takes about 5 minutes. No more remembering his Lantus at 7:00 pm every night. We bolus for meals and snacks sitting at a red light in the car. No more log sheets and calculators every time he tests and/or eats. Life is much simpler for this very active kid...
Oh, BTW, his dx story is here.
thanx i didnt get a chance to read his dx story but i will read it when ev i get the time.....btw wat is a "dx" story?
dx is shorthand for diagnosis :)
oh thanx i didnt want 2 sound stupid or nything askin' so thanx again!!
