Sabine's diabetes story

In better control with her pump since 2010

Two years ago, we decided that we would like to have a baby. Unfortunately, my blood glucose levels were not good enough at that time, which was a huge disappointment. Then, my doctor recommended insulin pump therapy to help me achieve the necessary HbA1c. Well, after just a short time with the pump my values were so good he said I could start trying for my baby. And very soon after that, I was pregnant! I think of my insulin pump as a little miracle. But of course, the real miracle is my beautiful, healthy son.
