Re: [IP] pump comparison



I was able to drop my A1c from 6.5 to 5.3 consistently and the only thing
that changed in the whole equation was the pump.  I personally feel that it
has to do with the delivery of basal insulin every 3 minutes.  I also wore
the Disetronic for a year and my A1c's were around 5.1.
