  1. Great educational piece, I have been living with diabetes for 38 years so it was great to see some of the technological advances as well as clarifying some of the processes behind diadetes.

  2. Hiya, I was diagnosed 25 years ago. I was given the Libre2 system about 3 weeks ago & we’re already planning on an Insulin pump after I receive and adjust to a new long acting insulin.
