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.....
