Fire this doctor and get a new one... he obviously is totally clueless 
concerning pumping. Anyone who thinks that you can get as good control with 
MDI as with a pump doesn't know anything about how pumps work. Has he read 
the DCCT??

I wish we could put some of these endos on the rigid schedule and 
restrictions that MDI entails. After a week, they'd be prescribing pumps 
left and right. And, we have far too many youngsters on the list, to 
believe that 13 is some sort of minimum age for pumping.
