About Diabetes Knowledge!
I’d like to welcome everyone to my website, diabetesknow.com (Diabetes in the Know or Diabetes Knowledge). My name is Kenny and I’m a type 1 diabetic for over 20 years. I use a Paradigm 523 insulin pump for my diabetic treatment. I’ve been very happy with my pump therapy since I started using it about 10 years ago. When I switched from syringes to the pump it was one of the best moves in my life. The freedom an insulin pump gives you is the ability to eat almost anything you want. BTW I’m not a doctor and don’t claim to be. I’m just a regular guy that want’s to help out uninformed diabetics by keeping them informed!
Real Life Diabetic Experiences and Goals
You’ll find real life diabetic experiences from different situations that can be difficult for people with diabetes. These can be sports, swimming, exercise, traveling and many more activities.
My goal in life is to be cured from diabetes but since there is no cure right now I thought I’d do the next best thing, help people who are newly diagnosed. Also check out Diabetes Knowledge if you’re someone who doesn’t know how to manage their diabetes. Use our community forum to get involved and please feel free to contact us. I’ll be sharing my personal diabetic experiences while adding the latest diabetes news as well as posting new exciting experimental treatments and clinical trial research.
Update: I’m currently using the Medtronic 670g pump system, with CGM guardian sensors. However, I’ll be switching to the Tandem t:slim X2 with Dexcom G6 very soon. Thank you, Kenny (Diabetes Knowledge).
