The best resource for everything related to insulin pumps.  This is the homepage, but you can “join” by completing a brief member profile.  Forewarning: you will receive LOTS of daily E-mails unless you opt to join the “digest,” which will enable you to receive 2 daily E-mails listing everything that’s been posted.  Topics cover everything imaginable related to diabetes.  Over 2,300 members, most of whom are adults, but a growing number of participants have children as young as 2 years old on insulin pumps.  A great and handy resource for posting questions that are answered quickly.
