TESTIMONIAL- Ashley- High School Student
Ashley remembers what life was like on a traditional pump. “It was difficult to fit in clothes-like you couldn’t wear a dress,” she said. “And for soccer I’d have to take the pump off for 2 hours which made it a lot harder to manage my insulin. For skiing, I’d have to keep going in every hour or so-it definitely affected how I could participate.” Ashley also recalls how summers at camp were difficult, taking the pump on and off and trying not to lose the parts or get sand on everything. And at home and school she’d need to be careful walking around as she often found her tubing getting caught and ripped out. With OmniPod®, all that’s changed. She’s found managing her diabetes is much easier, her A1C has dropped, she’s got much tighter control-and she loves the dress she’ll be wearing to the prom. “I can wear OmniPod® and you wouldn’t know I have diabetes. I don’t mind telling people I do, but now people can’t tell just by looking at me anymore. I’m definitely not as self-conscious about it as I was with the old pump with tubing.”
