Re: [IPu] NDSS scheme was -Sydney's Pumpgirl avnd tazzie



George,
Unfortunately the number of insulin-pump users who are members of the ADA
are few and far between thus the support is currently low but I am hoping
that through the ip-aus we enlist a lot more pump users and give us more
power to our voice. The ADA President supports our needs but some of the
full time staff are more interested in securing funds for research purposes.

Has there been any recognition from ADA as to the efficacy of pumping
insulin?  Perhaps ADA
