New technology?  We have to keep reminding ourselves, along with the insurance
companies and docs and the general public, that pumps are *not* particularly new.
Pump therapy is now one of several *standard* treatment options for diabetes.  I

have to continue to get this message out there, especially since the insurance
companies seem to use that excuse to avoid paying for pumps and pump supplies.
