Re: [IP] Pump suggestions

I'm in college and take classes from 10a till 4p. The pump I use is the 
Minimed 508. It's very easy to program and I haven't had any major problems 
during classes. It doesn't seem to be loud enough to bother people, at least 
no one's complained about it.

My 19 year old son will probably be adding insulin to his diabetes regimen
soon according to his endocrinologist. His sugars have been hovering around
the 300 - 400 range. He's currently taking 1500mg glucophage / day and while
it used to help, it doesn't anymore. By no means do I want to start a debate
here, I just want opinions on what pumps you would suggest for my son. Ease
of use, setup and that sort of thing. Bear in mind that he goes to college
and is on the move a lot. He also sleeps late a lot because he worked out
his college schedule so that he's in school from 9am - 6pm on Tuesdays and
Thursdays only.
