Real life stories

Newly diagnosed - Evert

Find out what Evert did after 46 Years of being Type 1

I have been diabetic Type 1 for 46 years and having a life of insulin shots ever since, up to end of last year when I had a serious low blood sugar reading, and epilepsy (seizure problem with low's all these years too) medication setback that landed me in hospital ICU of all places. It then decided that I should GO on insulin pump technology and ended up getting the newest released Minimed 640G technology! Now I am doing great, low blood sugar wise, compared to earlier years and in this case a life time!!!!  

Still and once again THANK YOU MEDTRONIC for EVERYBODY'S help, assistance, PATIENCE & endurance. TO ALL THANK YOU.
