RE: [IP] Re: Disetronic v. Minimet

I finally was able to speak with a human at Minimed, actually two. I'm going
with Disetronic, the D-Tron Plus, which would suit my needs better and the
company has been most helpful and patient with a pump-illiterate person, but
I'm learning quickly. Thanks for the input and I've also been spending the
morning reading past posts on this subject.
