Did you add CGM system with it? It will make a big difference.

I get the bloated feeling when my blood sugar is perfect, which is more likely to happen with the pump. If i go from not great control to excellent control, that's when i feel bloated - because I'm finally adequately hydrated, I'd imagine. lol :-)

I got the Medtronic MiniMed... I gained a lot of weight the 1st time around back in ####-####... 14lbs in a week and a half had me feeling so off. I've never truly had 100% control of my sugar. Now it's getting to me between leg issues and stomach problems I thought maybe a pump could help... because levels of 400+ were so common 200 didn't seem high to me at all. I'm exploring my options. But I know very little about pumps.. or other options...

I was 20 I'm 27 now I do physical therapy a lot of folks do pills I tried it but I was super sad all the time. Neuropathy has really become an issue for me. How old is your daughter?
