I was diagnosed with T1DM a year ago and my consultant thinks I should go on a pump. Medically, I know this would be the best thing for my diabetes but what I’m struggling with is where on earth to keep it! My consultant thinks I should get the medtronic 640g for its auto suspend function but it’s really really bulky…
Please don’t judge me for being shallow but I’m 26 and it’s taken a little while to feel comfortable in my own skin, so I’m fairly concerned about how I’ll look hooked to a pump. I already have a libre sensor, which I hate wearing enough as it is but at least when it’s on the back of my arm I can’t see it.
Also, practically speaking, I don’t know where I’d keep it as I usually wear dresses for work so no handy waist belt to clip it on. I’ve seen some women keep it in their bra but I’m not exactly ample chested so I’m not sure it would fit. Then I’m a fairly busy junior doctor running around hospital all day so it would preferably need to be fairly accessible.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or words of wisdom you ladies could offer me.
