Like "I just came across this discussion today and would like to make a comment. I was recently with a friend who has Type I and a pump and I have Type 2. We went to soul food place and I was picky about what to eat and he got all kinds of things fried chicken, banna pudding and I said to him i wish I could eat all of that and he said that being on a pump is better because he can control the carbs by the pump where I have to teast and take pills and watch all carbs. I thought that was an interesting concept. I take 2 pills for my diabetes. so far I have not needed anything else. KNock on wood."
