Editor’s comment...

W hile fear of needles makes sense on many

levels, it’s a whole different ball game if you

have to use them everyday to inject life-

sustaining medicines. So what can you do if you or a child

or partner has the affliction? We come up with some tips

-- and some kit -- to help on page 10.

As an extention of that investigation, we also have

a brief history of insulin pumps on page 16. With one

infusion set being inserted every three days or so, you

save on a whole bunch of injections, amoung the other

benefits, so we look back at the reasoning behind insulin

pump development.

for you. From p.20.
