As I understand it, ordinary insulin was not approved for use in
pumps when pumps first came out. So people used the pump and bought
'regular un-approved insulin' and went ahead and 'pumped'.
Personally, I don't see what difference it makes how you stick it in
your body. Conceivably, you could take an injection every 15 minutes
or so and that would be "approved". Dumb.....
