    But I am one of the lucky ones, since through my wife's insurance I was able to get a pump.  It has changed my life and I find I use far less insulin since the pump is more efficient.

    I feel for you, Farlfoto, and can only echo what others have said here: diet and exercise can do much to help your blood glucose levels.

      On pump.  Cut insulin by one half.  Far better control.

      Expensive-yes.  But much less so than diabetes complications.  Afford without insurance-no,  With?  barely.
