Re: [IP] Re:pumps and retinopathy



Hi Leesa:

I've had proliferative retinopathy in both eyes since 1980 and started on a
Minimed 506 four years ago. I've had NO problems due to the pump. However,
my opthamologist did confirm that there might be problems during the
switchover. Possibly, this could be due to the fact that it may take some
time to get optimal control with the pump - e.g. that your control may
deteriorate from pre-pump to post pump while you a learning about proper
basil rates, bolus, etc. However, at least in my case my retinopathy was
stable after going on the pump.

Good luck!

- Peter
