Re: [IPk] Serious idea, need feedback


Yes, you're right if they has diabetes they would find time, and I'm not in
any way trying to be obstructive, I'll gladly try the pump out,  it was
always intended that I should, I want to put the time in because among the
many reasons, I need to be as aware as I can be.

If we can at least make the medics as aware of pump therapy, (as a realistic
alternaitve to Injection therapy), as can be, then that's surely a step in
the right direction.  It seems at the moment that it really does depend on
an individuals doctor/nurse/ etc as to the buy-in.  I have a friend who's
been diagnosed for 3 years and never been taught/has no idea how to carb
count!  Her doctor would rather find out how her prize winning dogs are
getting along that her diabetes!  Work that one out!
