Hello, I was diagnosed T1D in 1981 when I was 6. I am now 38, been pumping since 1993 (age 18, just before college). I have been through childhood, teens, and am now adult with T1D, and I have probably been through more struggles then I hope any of you do. I was a clinical test patient for Humalog in the middle 1990's, getting shipments of insulin from the FDA. Dr's were hoping it would help with the insulin antibodies I had developed causing all kinds of other problems. I was diagnosed in 2010 with ALPS, a rare blood problem that normally does not occur in adults. I have been through a lot, and want to help share my struggles and successes so maybe it can help others with their questions for kids or adults. I have been through the steps and understand.
