15 Year Old Tara Feels Healthier!

Hi everyone! My name is Tara and I am 15 years old. I went on the pump in June of '99. I was first diagnosed with diabetes in January of '96, I was 11 years old. I was always on a strict schedule for eating and I was up to three shots a day. After taking injections for almost four years, I got tired of it. Eating what I had to when I had to and taking injections at a certain time. My parents and I talked to my doctor about going on the pump and three months after that I was on it! Let me tell you it was the best choice I have ever made! My blood sugar has been at its best with less than four high sugars a week and I can eat what I want, when I want. The first infusion set I used was the Silhouette, but it was very painful for me. My sites were getting infected and it was hard to put it. I changed to the Soft Set Micro with an inserter in December. I never feel it when I change my infusion set. The pump has given me a lot of freedom. I feel healthier and great! I recommend it for everyone who has diabetes!
