Re: [IP] Hi Everyone


There is a significant difference in the way both pumps deliver small basil
rate insulin. For example, if you are on a 0.2 basil rate through the night,
learn how frequently each pump delivers. It is important to look at the
technology involved in both pumps. For some people, the importance of the
technology differences don't really matter, but for others, like you, it could
make a significant difference in how well your child does with the pump.
Educate yourself, and make your decision based on knowledge, not on <"they
both work, and their small differences don't really matter much."

which pump, check out the mail archives, there have been lots of discussion on
the pro's and con's of each type, but it boils down to, as Michael said, they
both work, and their small differences don't really matter much >>
