Re: [IP] Why I Chose the D-Tron



I do not understand the pump bashing myself, however MiniMed and D-Tronic
both are contributors to the web site so my assumptions lead me to believe
this is why there is so much of the defensive posture from some individuals,
would be nice to see a forum where pump brands played no role in decision
making but here's to wishing!.......All pumps ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL so happy
shopping.

Furb :o}
