Receiving a type 2 diabetes diagnosis was overwhelming. I have always considered myself a healthy person. I eat right and workout. So, how could this be happening to me? If this sounds familiar, take deep breath and know you’re not alone.

    I'm a 1.5 and have been injecting a combo of Levemir and Humalog for 6 years. Added Metformin to that mix about two years ago. I also eat a limited carb diet and exercise regularly. I would like to consider switching to a pump, but am wondering if pump users are able to keep their A1C in the low 5 range. I have been able to keep mine at 5.2 for quite a while. I like the forum would appreciate feedback.

    Your A1C will be more of a result of what you do rather than how you take your insulin. If you're able to achieve an A1C that good on shots then a pump shouldn't change it. If you eat a limited carb diet and have a stable routine a pump may not benefit you that much. In fact, you may find yourself eating more and more carbs since you can just discreetly bolus by pushing a button rather than having to take your syringe or pen out and find a place to do it, and that could push your A1C up!
