Re: [IP] Info



Doris:
   Funny you should ask! My 17 yr old daughter Melissa( pumper for 4 yrs 
already) runs a Teen Support group with her CDE. At last night's gathering, 
he had her demonstrate the meter. Not only did she have to "prime it" 
multiple times to get a sampling, but it also left marks on her arm long 
afterwards. We had coincidentally been part of a market research panel a few 
years ago, testing a prototype version & the general consensus of the teens 
in the group was "thumbs down". I would presume it would have more practical 
applications for toddlers, but for the teens we know, the finger pricks are 
the least of their diabetes concerns.

Regards, Renee (pump mom)
