Getting a loaner pump while out of warranty?

But I'm going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and I'd like to have a backup for peace of mind.Thanks!See More

Dean Phillips replied to Nilesh's discussion 'Yoga cures diabetes?'
"So have you ever used insulin? If so why, Type 1 or 2? I wonder about stimulating the pancreas physically, such as with yoga, in an effort to "jump start" my pancreas. I know that when you hurt a finger that if you rub it, stimulate more…"
