Our 12 Year Diaversary – Going Untethered & Other Changes

It’s Stacey’s family’s 12 year diaversary. Benny was diagnosed the first week of December in 2006 just before he turned two. This week, Stacey takes a look back and gives an update on how they’re managing now. There are significant changes to share; Benny started an untethered routine about two months ago.

Learn more about untethered here. Also known as POLI (Pumping On Long Acting Insulin) untethered means you take long acting insulin like Tresiba or Lantus once a day but also use the pump. Stacey explains more. 

Also this week, one of the biggest changes in the past 12 years has been the rise of smart devices. Stacey talks about Klue, a new app that can sense when you’re eating and help you with boluses! Check it out and sign up to Beta here.
