Insulin pumps in the UK
May 16, 2005 6:47 AM   Subscribe

My wife is an insulin dependent diabetic who's had great success in using an insulin pump. We live in the US but are originally from the UK. After conversations with various people in the UK knowledgeable of diabetes treatment, we've learned that insulin pumps seem to be almost non-existent there. Is this really the case and if so what are the reasons?

I don't know about non-existent, but my college roommate's dad uses one. The only time Logan's ever had a problem was when the pump failed while he and Mrs. College Rommate's Dad were abroad.

I think I have what you meant reversed. You live in the US, but are from the UK, and you dont think people there use insulin pumps. I read that backwards. Sorry. :-/ To make up for my denseness, here is this helpful link.
