Re: [IPk] Joyce: re good news



Dear all,

Firstly, congratulations on your success, Joyce. After being turned down for
a pump yesterday it is great to hear some good news.

With regard to the NICE Determination, I wonder if someone can clarify
something for me? What is meant by, "adverse features of the metabolic
syndrome"? I've been told that my metabolism doesn't allow insulin to be
absorbed properly, hence insulin resistance. Maybe I'm daft, but I just
accepted that (I'm learning from you folks not to be so accepting in
future!).

Thanks,

Graham
