I just wanted to say 'Hi'.

My daughter (Twin 2) who is now 4 Months old was diagnosed with Pancreatic Agenesis a few days after she was born. This is a very rare disorder (only 14 known cases in the world). As a result she has permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus (Type 1) and is taking Pancreatin supplements to avoid malabsorption of her milk.

She has just received approval to be moved onto an insulin pump which I believe will be the Minimed Paradigm Veo.

I would really like to contact you and learn from your experience. Could you email me on imranbashir_uk (at) hotmail.com
