Abstract:

Increasing numbers of people with type 1 diabetes, all of whose lives depend on insulin, as well as type 2 diabetics, are adopting the insulin pump, which replaces a regimen of insulin shots with a continuous delivery of insulin. Yet many who stand to benefit from "the pump" are put off by not fully understanding the device, doctors unfamiliar with the therapy, and concerns about its cost, and many already using it don't have anyone with whom to compare notes. Now Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer offers insight into the day-to-day challenges of life with the pump and covers the topics that most people want information about: how the pump affects your sex life, dealing with money issues, finding support, counting carbohydrates, and cutting through common personal fears about the insulin pump. Drawing on interviews with more than seventy-five pump users as well as diabetes experts and other health professionals, Kaplan-Mayer offers knowledgeable, informative, reassuring advice that all pump users -- current and future -- will find extremely useful.
