I have been type 1 for a year. I've made a lot of progress but lots of room for improvement! I'm on novo rapid and levemir pens. My activity levels are often unpredictable in my job so I can have many hypos at work. Should I consider a different insulin treatment altogether?

Insulin pump is your better option. It allows you finer control than a fixed dosage.

Yes! With the pump you could adjust it to give you less insulin for a certain amount of time. I think a pump would be great for you

The pump is great from when I exercise! I usually decrease my basal to about 50% for two years which helps from me going low a few hours later. On shots I needed to stay in a more strict routine and the pump has allowed me a lot more freedom

I had that issue and I switched to an insulin pump. It helps because you can adjust insulin based on activity
