From Petal, Mississippi, USA:

My daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes four months ago. Is my daughter a candidate now for the pump? We really want to start on the pump as soon as possible.


There are criteria that physicians use for starting an insulin pump. which vary from physician to physician. I would encourage you to talk with your daughter's physician about the pump.
