Thanks @Caroline. I’ve just been thinking out loud really. Trying to understand my own pump aversion myself. And truth be told though I respect you all for your pumpery I’m still not convinced it’s for me. No blood test aversion here – anything from 6-10 times a day (would love a CGM!). No problem with multi-jabs – split doses can mean 4-6 of those a day too. HbA1c has been between 6 and 7 since diagnosis, last one was 7.0

This has been a fascinating discussion and I’ve learned loads about the practicalities. The results for many of you are clearly astonishing (though I do read lots of accounts of pumpers whose levels look just like mine too).

For the moment I’m happy with MDI and happy to keep myself of the pumpy waiting lists so it can go to someone who’s desperate for it. Goodness knows there are enough of them!
