hope MTM's numbers are better than this young lady's

but if she is not ready to take the responsibilities, then it is not right
for her..at 13, she has to be responsible for the pump if she gets one!

- ----------------------------------------------------------Who cares about
MTM's statements. MTM is almost blind from retinopathy.
Who knows if she can handle a pump. Her husband and I know each other from
Internship. He is a smart guy but that  does not mean that MTM is smart enough
to be a pumper.  I find its best to be in charge of your own disease if you
are 13, 15, 30, 45 or 60 years old. it does take soime maturity and an open
mind. Diabetes does kill, keep it in mind. high A1c's are a formula for
serious problems in life., spot...
