Hey**** my sister has type 1 and should be getting a pump in September. She was diagnosed when she was 6 and is 13 now. I've heard a lot of good things about it and pushed my sis to get one, I definitely recommend you to dig into it.

Hi**** Welcome to the world of Type 1. I've been a t1 for 14 1/2 years but only got a pump a year ago. It has changed my control so much because when eating or making correction doses, you can be more precise. Eg you can have insulin for half portions/exchanges and you can have a correction

Of 3.7 which might be the difference of stopping you from having a hypo. It also automatically calculates your carbs/correction doses so one less thing to calculate :)

There are some great Facebook support groups I highly recommend getting connected. It's amazing how helpful people will be. And YES you want to get a pump. It makes everything easier. Omnipod is very popular right now because there are no tubes.

I think that pumps are amazing but you should wait some months until you get one
