Hey Guys,

Timely discussion! Did you see that I just launched a series of how-to videos on insulin pumping? Please see these links:

I hope these are informative for everyone.

All the best,

Google "Insulin Pump Comparisons" and you should get several sites that compare the features of the different pumps. You want to read those features and determine which pump best fits your lifestyle.

That was a great suggestion. I found a lot of information doing that google search. I wont be changing for several years but hopefully I will remember to do that search when I do.

Congratulations! I've been on a pump since 1999. I think it was the greatest invention ever for a diabetic. It beats the heck out of shot after shot after shot… I think every diabetic who is on insulin should be on a pump. It's the closest thing to a pancreas.

I think in no time you will love it as much as I do.
