Re: [IP] Pump called off



9/25/00

I'm sorry if this seems heartless or "mean spirited," but . . .

An insulin pump does EXACTLY what it's "advertised to do" --

1. Delivers a basal insulin dosage at the hourly rate determined and
programmed by the user.
2. Delivers a bolus dose of insulin when the user programs it to do so.

That's it. That's all an insluin pump is "advertised to do." Ultimately it's
the diabetic, and only the diabetic, who's responsible for using the TOOL
(i.e.,, insulin pump) to help control blood sugar levels.
