Are insulin pumps efficacious with Type 2 diabetics? If so, any recommendations as between MiniMed or Disetronic pumps for Type 2s? Thanks for the info.


Yes, use of an insulin pump is appropriate, if the Type 2 patient needs insulin therapy, and is highly motivated.

My staff and I have no preference between the two brands. Be sure to look at both brands, and see which features are of greatest importance to you.
