Re: [IPk] ID cards

Thanks Estelle.

I don't deny that IV insulin and glucose in an emergency situation is the
best treatment until things are stabilised. But in many situations a
non-pumping diabetic would rapidly be put back on injections. How many
hospitals would trust themselves - or you - to put you straight back on a
pump as an in-patient while your diabetes is still their legal responsibility?
