> A team at the University of Rochester School of Medicine reported on their 
> experiences with 53 young children who use an insulin pump. In the children 
> who were aged 2 to 12, HbA1cs decreased significantly, as did the range of 
> glucose excursions and critically the rate of severe hypoglycemia. The 
> grouped concluded in their presentation to the ADA Congress in July of this 
> year that young children very clearly benefited from pump therapy. 
> Associate Professor Nicholas Jospe, MD, is pediatrician and pediatric 
> endocrinologist at the University of Rochester's Golisano Children's 
> Hospital. A graduate of the Univesrity of Brussels, Dr. Jospe undertook a

> headed up the team who undertook this important research and is a strong 
> advocate of pumping in young children.
