Marco's diabetes story

Hypoglycemia can be one of the biggest concerns for people with Type 1 diabetes, especially during the night, when it can be more difficult to recognize low levels of blood glucose (lows). One of the main goals of diabetes management is to achieve target HbA1c levels safely, without increasing the risk of hypoglycemia (hypos).

Marco's diabetes story

In better control with his MiniMed® pump since 2011

"At the beginning, when I was on MDI, I could never tell when my hypos were coming. Once, in town, I just fell to the pavement. I still remember people avoiding me and walking away, probably thinking I was drunk. I had to drag myself home all alone. I had heard about many positive experiences with pump technology so, after a long period of having hypos, I asked my doctor if I could try it. Now, I wear a MiniMed Veo insulin pump all the time and I’ve almost forgotten what hypos are."
