Episode Info

Episode Info: “What insulin pump should we get?” is a really common question. But it isn’t the right question, at least to start. We're turning that around into, “If I want a pump, how should I choose one?” After all, every pump out there has devoted fans, which tells you there isn't a bad or wrong choice. Stacey is joined by long-time diabetes advocate Melissa Lee and together they lay out what adults and parents of kids with type 1 need to think about. This show discusses insulin pumps available in the US, but the ideas and conversation can be applied to any make and model pump on the market. This podcast is not intended as medical advice.

And if you are new to the show, because you heard about us or saw me at Friends for Life, the virtual conference that happened last week, I am thrilled to have you here.
