combining insulin pump therapy with the traditional oral  antidiabetic
drugs used for milder type 2 cases, in order to increase  insulin sensativity

I actually did this.  Though I am type I, my doc tried me on a  combination 
of Avandia and another drug (cannot remember the name).  I  gained a lot of 
weight very quickly and stopped the orals.  The benefit to  me was about a 25% 
reduction in overall insulin useage.  It was not worth  the result.
