George's, Emma's son, diabetes story

In better control with his pump since 2010

George was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on the 1st of August 2006 and as a parent, it is not a day you ever forget! Our world was turned upside down. On injections, life became a whole new regime and we felt that diabetes took over our lives completely. When George was on multiple injections, his sugar levels were never within range. But within 5 months of getting his insulin pump, he was in range and now his HbA1c is down to 6.8. With the pump, I am more confident that George is taking better care of himself and as a parent this gives me peace of mind. I think the insulin pump is amazing, it just changes your child's life and to be honest it's given George his life back.
