Re: [IP] FDA stops sale of insulin pumps

Michael, I whole-heartedly agree with you!  Disetronic seems like a great
company, and I like their pumps, but I had to get a Minimed (no choice at
Kaiser 4 years ago).  I hope this doesn't hurt Disetronic's business too
much.  Btw, did they merge with ROche or something??
ciao, Brian
