Re: [IP] Another new endo, another frustration (long)

    Good advice...this tide IS turning v-e-r-y slowly. I spoke to a woman who
works for Minimed & is also the mother of a 12 yr old pumper, so she's got a
dual perspective.  She's seen a definite reversal in the anti-pump attitude of
many endos - particularly regarding children. Human nature doesn't take kindly
to "change" & that seems to be particularly so for the medical profession.
After continually faxing her former endo her son's increasingly improved A1Cs,
she's now hearing that that doctor IS prescribing pumps now for children. Good
luck in being a "trendsetter"!!!
