insulin pump

I hear that the insulin pump can help control your sugars better. I have diabetes mellitus and my doctor wants me to go on the pump. I have taken shots for 10 years and wondered if anyone is on the pump and likes it?

  • I know of a young woman who has a pump and she seems to prefer it. Less mess and no worries. I would keep asking around or ask the MD to speak with someone who has one. Good luck
