I had a phone call from my hospital clinic to say my pump is coming up to 4 years with the service guarantee ending and what replacement would I like.This was quite difficult to make a quick decision.
I asked what was the choice and I would like a remote hand set, She mentioned a Dana or a patch pump but only a small amount of choice. So what did I do? yes you guessed it! The same again the Insight as I have had very little problems I thought better the devil you know. I hope this is the best decision. The only disadvantage is the choice of insulin as you are limited to Novo Rapid as it works for me it’s not a problem,but maybe it would have been nice to have the ability to try an alternative but life is a compromise.
Now they have to apply for the funding,it is now I wish I had not been so rude about the local CCG and contacted my MP about them,even though that still didn’t get me the Libre on prescription
This makes life complicated as for a pump you need to show a improving hypo level so I had to say <2 a week but when I was trying to get a prescription for the Libre it was the other way round saying >8 soI could show an improvement life is fickle.
I hope my pump funding is approved as it is now my best friend and do not want to return to injection again.
