Teresa's diabetes story

In better control with her pump since 2012

When I was diagnosed with diabetes, it was very hard. I used multiple daily injections and had continuous hypos. When they were really bad, I even lost consciousness. It made me angry, because I was studying at university but I couldn't concentrate. It was terrible. I could not manage my diabetes, so with the help and support of my physician, I decided to try an insulin pump. Now I have an insulin pump and I enjoy a great level of control. This improved my life, as I could say goodbye to severe hypos. I can honestly say that my diabetes is no longer controlling me, but I’m controlling my diabetes.
