One question and answer:

What is the cost of insulin pumps?

Jothydev: The cost of pumps with us is less compared to that in USA. Only Rs.1,75,000. This is cheaper than in the country it is manufactured!!! In India refurbished pumps are available at lesser costs, but I prefer Paradigm pumps only.
Monthly expenses will be an extra Rs.4500 for the change of infusion set every 3 days. There is an amazing improvement in the quality of life of pumpers both in Type 1 and in Type 2 diabetes.
