DANA Diabecare R insulin pump

This may be the smallest, lightest insulin pump system at 63g (including battery) but it has the standard 300-unit insulin capacity as well as waterproof specification. There’s the insulin pump itself, as well as a separate remote control with integrated blood glucose meter. Test results are sent to the micro infusion pump wirelessly. The remote also helps you calculate carbs so you can figure out your boluses and adjust or temporarily reset your basal rates, which are delivered from the pump to the body via tubing and infusion sets. You can check and review your histories on the screen. The DANA Diabecare insulin pump series now provides diabetes care for more than 50,000 users in 47 countries, many of them in Asia. The manufacturer, SOOIL Development Company of Korea, has been refining its insulin pump technology for more than 30 years and have the longest history of insulin pump manufacture.

    I know its been awhile since you’ve posted this. So I hope im not too late to talk to you about it. Im 23 years old and just found out last year that I was type 1 diabetic. My mom has been wanting me to look into getting the pump, because I work in the oil field and its hard for me to stop and give myself injections all the time. There should be some way that you’re able to get on the pump, rather you’re type 2 or 1. That shouldnt have any effect on it. If they say you “meet the criteria” that you need to give your insulin injections. Then why wouldnt they let you get on the pump? Like I said, its been almost a year since you’ve posted this, so you might already have one by now. But if for some reason you dont, I would definitely try and ask my doctor about it again. If for some reason he/she still denies your request, I would move on to another doctor. Hope everythings going well. Stay strong and hang in there.
