Re: [IP] Swimming with the pump

My name is Jed and I am currently looking to move to the pump.  I went to
the endo today and currently have the infusion in now to try out.  I was
looking at Disetronic so that I could also swim laps.  Where do you actually
keep it when swimming?  I would like any advice that I could get. Thanks, jd
