[IP] Re:Theresa Hodge (Teens and Pumps)

Many doctors prefer to put teens on pumps right away and skip the MDI routine 
altogether. They usually take to it right away since they tend to be 
techno-savvy and learn the ropes quickly when they are explained the benefits 
of a pump vs.MDI to their lifestyles. Fitting in, i.e., not having to use 
syringes at school and events is a strong motivator at this age. I'm 
surprised your doctor didn't give her the option.
