Hi Tracey, welcome over to this side of the Forum. There are a few members on the insulin pump and hopefully they'll be along to read your post and give some of their advice. In the meantime, here's a website that says it compares different pumps. There are probably several other brands besides these, too., so you could google to see. I don't know if they automatically dispense according to readings or if they're only preprogrammed. I would imagine that your brother would need a prescription. I hope something works out for him.
HI,Thanks for the welcome, another question I had, ok so I but a pump for my brother, now how long is that pump guranteed for, and lets say it is guarented for 5 years and it dies at 6 years, now do I have to buy another pump for $5,000.00 to $6,000.00 again in 5 to 6 years? I have no idea how any of this works, I just know that my brother is very sick, and this would help him out alot, any and all info would be appreiated, Also thanks Lanie for website info..
oh for sure his Dr. would, my brothers is right out of control, insurance does not cover, I would be buying it for him, but not sure which would be the best, the best warranty ect... and was hoping there was one out there that would read BG and then just dispense..
Thanks for input
