Re: [IP] Pumping - then & now



Wow, Jan.  Thanks so much for then insight on how far diabetes has come.
Your email has prompted a question- my cousin has been type 1 now for about
20 years.  He started pumping a couple of years after diagnosis so I'd guess
in the mid 80s.  He talked about using the needles that stay in place
(instead of the cannula that most have today) and about all the scar tissue
that built up over the years.  He doesn't wear a pump now because he says he
has no place left to wear a set.  He rarely will talk about diabetes with
me, and the one time he did he said his nos. were all over the place.  Is it
possible that even with all the scar tissue he could benefit from the pumps
today?  He had never heard of the square wave etc, but seems so discouraged
from the past that he won't listen.  Did you experience any of these
problems?  Any encouraging news I could give him would be greatly
appreciated.
Thanks
Beth
