Real life stories

Anneli's, Martina's daughter, diabetes story

In better control with her pump since 2011

When Anneli was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, my first thoughts were that I wanted our lives to go on just as they were; having fun, laughing, without having to always worry about insulin levels. Our physician and nurse at the hospital convinced me that by using an insulin pump Anneli would have better control – and a better life. She was so right!  Over the years, we have participated in women’s races together, flown around the world and even been skiing in Lapland. Thanks to the insulin pump and Anneli’s better control, we can do everything again.
