I'm thinking about going off of my pump for a while. I haven't used injections since I was about eight and need a refresher. Is it essential to use a long acting insulin? Other advice is welcome!

Defo! It helped me so much, I feel a lot more controlled on injections! No problem at all hope everything works out for you!😃

I came off mine for a while, just needed a break from it. You will deffo have to go back onto long acting injections. Good luck x

Hmm...why would you want to go off the pump? I'm not on a pump yet.

The pump gave me my freedom back and better control would never go back to the old ways again
