[IPk] Pump types

John ,
You are right that that the 505 is less sophisticated but it is considerably cheaper !!

Obviously it isn't suitable for anyone requiring variable basal rates at night [ insulin sensitive periods or dawn rises ] but for many people needing 1 rate or changes only during the day it works well .

OK you don't see it much in Germany where everything is reimbursed but in poorer countries lacking funding for insulin pumps it is well accepted .

It can still give you the benefit of improved glycemic control over MDI .
