The following blog posts by Ashley were commissioned by Ypsomed, as part of a patient education series on the mylife YpsoPump. She began trialling the mylife YpsoPump in April 2018. This blog series chronicles her initial and ongoing experiences with the mylife YpsoPump.
Now that I have reached my final post for this series, I’ve been using YpsoPump for about 18 months. While I’m still waiting for the bi-directional update, many things have happened along the way that have made me love the pump – and Ypsomed – even more.
A week ago I received my new Unio Neva meter in the mail (and by the way, I love the custom mylife Diabetescare washi tape!). Alongside the meter, there were some test strips, a bottle of control solution – which I have not seen in a long time – and a lifetime supply of lancets.
In the past few months, I have experienced some of the frustrations that can happen when you live with diabetes. But they have been relatively easy to deal with, thanks to the features of the pump and the support from Ypsomed.
