The world of diabetes has come such a long way since my diagnosis 13 years ago. I am beyond blessed to have access to such amazing technology! The Omnipod 5 integrated with the Dexcom G6 truly saved me. After losing my parents health insurance at 26, I was struggling to afford my medications and my A1C went up to a 14.4. Since being on the Omnipod I’ve brought it down to a 6.9. It has truly been a game changer for me, and has taken so much of the mental stress and anxiety that comes with living with T1. Until we find a cure we are truly blessed with how far things have come and are continuing discover! Opening up to the online community has also been one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made I never feel alone in this anymore and I have so many amazing friends who truly understand what I am going through and support me along the way!
