Isulin Pumps

Can anyone point me in the right direction please.
How any insulin pumps are fitted each year?
Is the success rate of them the same as the fitted number?
Its only a short message but its where to start for some research, so thanks for any help.

Re: Isulin Pumps

Some people don't like the pump. Personally, I don't get that as I loved mine. You can be as successful as you want. All it really requires is hard work. As for "fitting" a pump, that's not a good description. You are given one (not sure where you are and how easy it is to get one) and together with your doctor and trainer make the adjustments on how the insulin is delivered. I would find out what pumps are available in your area by calling your local diabetes association and then checking out the manufacturers website. They give very good information about pumps.

Thank you for your responce, I take onboard your comment "Fitting" I have contacted the B.D.A. (the British Diabetic Assocation) asking for the same info. I dident know there were different pump's so thank again.

Re: Isulin Pumps

Ditto to everything Cora said. I've been on a pump for 10 years and I absolutely love it, plus I've been able to achieve better control than I ever could have on shots.
