I had been using my insulin pump for 12 yrs and had to give it up due to pain on my sites. I then went about a year on shots and was having a hard taking my insulin that way due pain, itching, and swelling when took any. I just recently found out that I have been allergic to my insulin! Thankfully I found a great NP that listened to me and helped me find an insulin that works great for me!
