“ “I have to worry a lot less about diabetes because my pump does it for me,” said William, an avid athlete and soccer player who advocates and speaks publicly and passionately about living with type 1 diabetes. “It predicts my highs and lows, constantly monitors my glucose levels and shows me a graph of my blood sugars. It makes my life so much easier. „

“An insulin pump with continuous glucose monitoring makes it easier to maintain my average blood sugar levels because I can detect trends more quickly, allowing me to take action earlier.„
“I work shift work as a paramedic and my insulin pump with CGM has given me the confidence I need to perform at a heightened awareness level every day. Before my insulin pump, I was struggling with my diabetes management while working shift work and it was having a toll on my well-being. Today, I have great glucose control, I feel that I have less diabetes-related complications and everyone, including myself, has complete confidence in my blood glucose control under stress events and working long hours.„
