Is a pump necessary for type 2?

Hi Dan, the reason why my Dr. told me about the pump, was because I was not doing my insulin shots how I was suppose to. You should ask your Dr. my readings were always over 250

WELCOME to DC!
I do not but there are several here who do.
There are a lot of T 1s who use the pump.

Did you have a particular question about the use of the pump or anything else about them?

God's best to you

Here's an artiicle from Lilly corp which gives the basics ~ http://www.lillydiabetes.com/Pages/counting-c...
