    Anyone here using a pump? Got any recommendations to someone that might be looking down that road?

    My biggest concern is how it would affect daily activities.

    I used I work in construction with a guy that used one. Didn't affect him in anyway.

    I saw that article last night. Very interesting! There was an article a few years back on tattoo ink that could give a rough estimate of levels. I need to see if anything became of that. Not that I need an excuse for more ink... :)

    my brother used one for a couple of years. no trouble with the pump operation per se, but sometimes the needle would come loose at nights during sleep. that was a real issue. because of this, combined with his gastroparesis he decided to go back to multiple daily injections. i believe his example is an outlier, though, so unless you have similar symptoms as he, i would encourage you to try the pump.

    So does it get removed before sleeping? The thought of having something attached to me, via insertion is a little weird.
