Re: [IP] Pumps are a luxury??!!



I would like to know if Drs think that needles and insulin is  a luxury for
Diabetics. Insulin pumps are expensive, yet are a way to help with bettering
a Diabetics chance of having a normal life. Also giving us a way to
bettering surger levels  and lessening the chance of the effects of
Diabetis. Until there is a cure this is getting us closer to having a chance
at a normal life.
