I’ve never heard of any insulin-dependent Type Twos using a pump. I don’t see why they shouldn’t, but getting funding would, I bet, border on the improbable – T2’s seem to get the shitty end of the funding stick.
The biggest problem with a pump for a T2 would be the sheer volume of insulin to be injected. As I’ve probably (boringly) mentioned on here before, I take insulin in doses that most T1s would regard as suicide. Currently 150 units of Lantus at night and 60 units of Novo-Rapid before meals. You’d be so busy changing cartridges there’d be practically no benefit over MDI in my humble opinion.
Wow Teloz you would need one of those water bladder type things hikers have hanging down their backs but full of insulin .With the large doses you need do you have to inject more than once or is there a large quantity pen ?
