Re: [IP] Information category attn. Michael



Another reason for the lower percentage of type 2's on the pump has to do
with insurance.  My insurance company will cover a pump for an IDDM Type 1,
but not for an IDDM Type 2.  So if you were a Type 1 diagnosed at 30 and
your doctor categorized you as Type 2 ... too bad.  Or even if you are a
Type 2 and can't live without insulin, they won't cover it.

Just more food for thought,
Sherry
