  Dear Rosalind,
   How do you know that your lump is from diabetes?  My stomach doesn't have
any hard lumps from needles but it's hard for it to get firm again.  I became
diabetic right when I became pregnant 10 yrs ago.  So I don't know if my
access stomach is from my two pregnancies or diabetes.  What do you think?
Are you now on the pump?  For how long have you been on it?  Are you only on
Humalog?  If you are, are you having any problems with the Humalog?????
Thanx for writing back!
