From Springfield, Georgia, USA:

My child, almost 6 years old (diagnosed at 18 months), has recently been approved by her endocrinologist to receive an insulin pump. We are very excited about this and are trying to educate ourselves as much as possible. Any ideas where we can look for more information?


Web sites from MiniMed, Disetronic, and Animas are good starting places. Excellent books include The Insulin Pump Therapy Book and Pumping Insulin. Asking your pediatric endocrinologist and/or diabetes educator(s) this same question would also be a great idea.


[Editor's comment: Also, see Is pumping for you? on this website. SS]
