RE: [IP] surviving in France with an insulin pump

Hi Anne and Maya,
i am currently using minimed paradigm 722. i am planning to renew it  
soon though, probably will stick to medtronic as it has a very wide  
global presence.
I did contact medtronic france yesterday, they promised to email me a  
list of hospitals in paris
Maya, thx for your offer to help.
i have talked to one parisian hospital so far (ambroise pare), which  
said that i need to qualify for a pump from scratch, ie be  
hospitalised for 5 days, try everything else (mdi), and when it all  
fails, then maybe pump, which to me is a bit ridiculous, waste of time  
and too risky. i am guessing that a hospital that already has pump- 
patient should have a more practical solution to a patient who has  
been sing the pump for 3 years.
