[IPk] Re: Magazines for Melisa WAS Micropumps for Wendy

Hi Melisa,

http://www.diabetesnet.com ("The Diabetes Mall") is the best site for buying 
books about diabetes, especially pump books, that I have found. _Pumping 
Insulin_ is a book, not a magazine. The guy who runs The Diabetes Mall, John 
Walsh, is one of the co-authors of _Pumping Insulin_. He is an American 
long-term type 1 with credentials similar to those of a DSN. (ALL the pump 
companies take advice from him!) The Diabetes Mall charges (I believe) GBP 4 
per order for UK shipping. That is a pretty decent price considering that 
some of the items that The Diabetes Mall sells are not easy to find in the 
UK. All the items on the site are priced in US dollars so you can benefit 
from the strength of the pound too! (http://www.oanda.com/convert/classic is 
a useful currency conversion calculator.)

There are no regular monthly magazines that one can subscribe to that cover 
insulin pump use specifically. The best monthly magazine I know of that 
regularly publishes information on insulin pump use is _Diabetes Health_ 
(http://www.diabeteshealth.com). A one-year subscription sent to a UK 
address costs US $37.95, which is about GBP 21.00. Another good diabetes 
magazine is _Diabetes Self-Management_, which is US $36 per year (about GBP 
20) for a one-year subscription to any address outside the US.

Hope this helps,

Type 1 13+ years; MiniMed pumper 7.5 years; Animas pumper 2.5 years;
