I have been told by my high risk OB drs that i should probably be on the pump. To be completely honest, I have a mixed bag of emotions regarding getting one. I have done some research and generally hear that it gives the diabetic much more freedom.
I guess I am skeptical if thats really the case. It seems like it would be more difficult wearing a contraption almost 24 hours a day, and learning the equipment and calculations or lugging the techy stuff with you that does the calculations for you. And the part of me that is girly and vain wonders how my clothes will fit, does the tubing show, etc. I also have concerns about infection. Altho I have never tested positive for MRSA I have had staph/cellulitis several times in the past few years resulting in extensive hospital stays.
I am interested in hearing the pros AND cons. Most stuff i seem to find net wise is slanted toward the positive. But on the flip side, the doubting Thomas in me always wonders how much is pure hype by Drs and the pharmacutical community.
