The following blog posts by Jasmine were commissioned by Ypsomed, as part of a patient education series on the mylife YpsoPump. This blog series chronicles her initial and ongoing experiences with the mylife YpsoPump.
I am a paramedic and have had type 1 diabetes since the age of six. My lifestyle is incredibly busy – I am constantly rushing around and have a very unpredictable schedule. I often work long 12–14 hour shifts where I do not have the chance to sit down and have a break, let alone eat. This can be mentally and physically demanding, especially when you throw diabetes management and hypoglycaemia into the mix.
