I think what all these "professionals" miss is that there is no
motivation for a youngster on shots to test at all. It just tells
them how badly they are doing and they have no ability to change
anything. MDI is not a winner for the same reason. They just have to
stick themselves more. I know my daughter hates to stick herself. The
pump is an entirely different proposition. The motivation is to test
more because the results provide direction that allows direct an
almost instantaneous modification of the bg values using the pump.
Thus, freedom to eat, sleep, play, etc... is literally and
figuratively "right at their fingertips".
