I have had Type 1 diabetes for 17 years. Insulin pump therapy has changed my life, and I love my Tandem t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Control-IQ technology and my Dexcom G6 CGM system

This #perfectpair makes living with diabetes manageable and provides me with tools that allow me to be in control of my condition, not controlled by it, and the overwhelmingly bleak outcome of unchecked glucose control. 

With the help of this technology, I am back in the driver’s seat and can be proactive about my day rather than reactive. 

Continuous glucose readings and trend arrows, paired with automatic basal adjustments and correction boluses, allow for a quicker and pre-emptive response. This supports me in achieving greater time in range and significantly reducing my risk of diabetes-related complications.

In the face of what was once a fatal diagnosis, I am very grateful for these innovative diabetes management products.
