Insulin Pumps

Question from Arlington, Texas, USA:

Have you heard anything about a recent birth of a child with diabetes in Arkansas? I wanted to know as much about the baby as possible. I understand he/she is on a pump. Is this the first time this has ever happened?


The story you refer to was published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://www.ardemgaz.com/). We published a link to the on-line article, but it has since been taken down.

There are other cases of infants on an insulin pump: see http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/pkids/youngest.shtml.
