Are insulin pumps dangerous?

So this fabulous article was published saying the insulin pumps can be dangerous. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-nat-insulin-pumpsmay05,0,5969969.story Of course EVERY news media in the country has picked it up. So I just got my first call from a relative to “let me know”…THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP! Being type 1 diabetic is dangerous!!! Where is the news about that? Insulin is life support. I happen to think that an insulin pump is still the best form of delivery. Sure, if it malfunctions (which is quite rare) or your teen isn’t dosing or regularly checking sugars, it can be quite dangerous, WITH OR WITHOUT A PUMP!!! Maybe I need to put together a new video about the REAL DANGERS of diabetes.

Excellent article! Thanks for educating the public :slight_smile: It was very, very well written!
