Small is good and it will get better...
My first pump was 5.5 inches long, My first glucose meter had to be used at home (it took about 3-5 minutes to complete the test and you needed a seperate timer.) And we used Tes Tape and Clinitablets, which required a test tube and dropper,(all worthless) to check glucoe levels. My first insulin delivery device was a glass syringe that was sterlized in boiling water in a device that sat on the tank of the toilet (AT 10 YEARS OLD). The big innovation for me as a teen was the disposable syringe.
AND my favorite innovation: diet soda which was not availble when I was in high school.
Each advance makes my life easier and improves my control. Check out the discussions on the Type 1 board and see what we carry. In my opinion, AR is the champ of small.
I have to say that I "butt dial" my phone occasionally and would not want to do that with a pump... We have come SO far, I just want it to get better. \
It is very small for me already.
