Re: [IP] Starting the pump !


     Thanks for your response, and your encouragement. I'm sure it was not
the Humolog, he has only been on it since it came out about a year and a
half ago. The thing with the needles was when he was diagnosed about 6 years
ago. I feel it may have been the silicone on the end of the needles. I'm not
sure, all I know is that is was painful and sounded like star foam. The
first 3-4 months was fine, but it gradually got awful, and I used a new
needle everytime. By 8 months you could hardly get the needle in at all,
anywhere. Anyway, I'm sure the pump is what he needs, I am nervous, but this
mailing list is great.
Thanks for your support.
