Re: [IPk] Wearing the pump.

Yes, combat shorts and trousers are great for diabetics as they have 
loads of big pockets which are usually quite secure, for pumps, meters 
etc! I have several pairs and wear them loads in summer. My favourite 
ones are the ones that zip off either mid-thigh or mid-calf to make 
shorts or three-quarter length trousers!
