I do like that the pump eliminates the need for the basal insulin. What I don't like about the pump is that you're tethered to it 24-hours a day.
I looked into the pump, and it's just not for me.
Never heard of the "dead in bed" syndrome. that's totally fucked.
They're coming up with new shit all the time. There's the omnipod that is wireless, you attach it and the meter communicates to the pod (it's disposable) and administers the insulin.
The one thing that's scary about the pump is not having the long acting insulin makes you more susceptible to DKA when you get sick.
