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
This is cheaper than in the country it is manufactured!!! In India
refurbished pumps are available at lesser costs, but I prefer Paradigm pumps
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.
