I would think she would be in a LOT of danger of hurting her feet. We know
that people who cannot feel pain are in great danger of injuries that go
unnoticed. Besides, with my neuropathy I felt a lot of pain.

My thought is she should ask the pump companies for literature and videos,
then make a choice, contact the pump company and let the insurance
department handle the persuasions. They want to sell a pump and can convince
a doctor and/or pump company of the necessities. They are trained to do
this. HTH
