1. I’m glad you were able to take charge of the direction you wanted your diabetes management to head in, but as you said, plenty of other people either don’t know how to or don’t have the access to do this.

    Basal testing is a drag, good luck with it! I know you’ll get there….until your Diabetes decides it doesnt like those doses anymore and you get to change it up alllll over again.

  2. Frank I think your path has been amazing these past 6 years. I remain in awe, not just of your path but also your writing.

    I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes blog page for the week of May 16, 2016.

  3. Frank, I love your message. Advocating for yourself throughout life is integral for success. And…you will need to advocate now more than ever, as you get pumping down. Joe used to be on the Animas! I loved that pump. We are now using Omnipod.

    Keep up the great work!

  4. I was actually afraid to initiate the conversation about an insulin pump, because I was concerned that my health insurance wouldn’t cover it if it seemed like a patient preference. I’m not sure if that’s true. It may have gone over just fine. I was asked several times if my doctor initiated the conversation or if I did, though. (I live in the US)

    It’s so great that you’ve found an educator who listens to what you need and is helping adjust to the pump. I’ve only had mine 6 months, and I’m constantly making tiny tweaks. I hope you love it!
