Subject: [IP] Dream Beam pictures

(I screwed up the links the first time, so I'm re-sending this.)

I took some pics of my Futrex Dream Beam non-invasive BG meter (I'm part of 
their FDA field trial) next to my insulin pump. They can be seen at 

Type 1 - too freakin long (28 yrs)

You might want to print out a copy of the lawsuit settlement info about the 6 
year old and her school district. It's not to long and your professor might 
find it educational. See the LINKS page of the web site:

Ok guys,

All of the contributors to the rogues gallery of infusion set photos have been 
ladies. Are you MEN too bashful to send me a picture of your BUTT !! or 

Come on guys -- I need photos of SofSets and where you put them. All the picts 
I have now are Sil/Tender/Comfort sets.

Ladies !!! don't get the wrong idea, I still want your pictures too.

Lots of questions come up from newbies about where to put the sets.
Everyone seems to have figured out that tummy's work, but there are
lots of other useful infusion sites, particularly if you have
difficulty with absorbtion or you have scarring from years of
injections. SEND PICTURES. There is no collection of pictures illustration 
infusion site placement anywhere else. Come on!! help out. All the photos are 
anonymous and will be cropped or "covered" as necessary to keep the decent.

Send me photos of your infusion set placement by email or snail mail

The current photos have finally earned a link on the web site. See the entry

Linda, I'm a happy MM507C user, but chatted with a diesetronic rep at a
diabetes expo the other day who told me D is coming out with a new pump in
June that WILL be backlit and have square/dual waves....I'm not sure I trust
all these reps, but that's what this one said, just FYI.

Well, here's another thought. I have been on the MM 506 for about 7 years,
quite happily. However, it's about time for a new one for a variety of
reasons. So, I have looked at the D.....I like the waterproofness and the
way the temp basal rate works compared to MM, but I want the square
wave feature and the backlight.
