Dominika's diabetes story

In better control with her pump since 2012

When I was diagnosed with diabetes I basically went into denial. I was not interested in treating my disease. I simply did not want to admit I had it. But then, a girl I knew developed serious long-term complications because she had not managed her diabetes well. I had just found a doctor who really believed in insulin pump therapy, so I decided to try it. Now, thanks to my insulin pump, I have much better blood glucose control, I live a normal life and best of all, I’m actually looking forward to the future.
