Hi Simon,
Like you I always has HBA 1c’s of around 6.1 to 6.8 for the last 20 odd years but managed to get put onto an Omnipod pump this year. Like Tim, I roller -coasted with BG no’s over the years. I do a lot of sport and need to have more immediate control over insulin requirements which a pump gives, you won’t be able to use the hormonal stuff that a pump helps with but years of MDI does bugger up insulin absorption so going from over 50 jabs a week to 2.5 certainly is easier on the bod. Patient choice is worth bandying too, occasionally a magic phrase, often not! Good luck.
