[IP] re: interesting observation about people

"Why would someone who has to take
insulin not want to use a pump?"   This observation has really peaked my
I recon that:
people do not like change
People afraid of technology
Think it is harder (Yes it requires a real commitment to testing and carb
Education of their health care team (When I was in the ER several months ago
with a broken hand the attending had no idea how a pump worked or what the
advantages were over MDI).

I think you could add one more obvious reason more people wouldnt opt for the
pump, and thats cost.....there are way too many people in this country who are
unable to receive any health care, let alone proper health care......
