No I'm on the snap pump now. Have you looked into that? Much more freedom and better control. Feet swell if my sugars are high

I did everything I ever wanted to do. I just always check my blood. 6-8 times per day. Now I'm on Dexcom which checks it for me. I played college basketball. Now married with beautiful wife and 2 kids. Diabetes never held me back. In fact, it made me different and gave me a lot of discipline. I sell a new insulin pump called snappump.com
