5.0 out of 5 stars Very Practical Guideline Nov. 18 2003
Format:Paperback
This excellent book provides very practical guideline to insulin pumping and covers all the aspects of pumping: from the best pump wearing to the complex tinny tuning of insulin regime. Usually such kind of books contains two main parts: the first one explains whom and why need the pump, while the second part retell user guide for a pump. The reviewing book is favorably different by substance. It bases on the modern scientific research published. I am longstanding diabetic and diabetic reader, but I discovered some new facts about the diabetes, its complications, and insulin therapy. My recommendation is: don't delay, - buy and study this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Smart with Smart Pumping Sept. 12 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
SMART PUMPING by Howard Wolpert is an excellent resource for those using an insulin pump or considering one.

It is less complex that PUMPING INSULIN and does not cover the new technologies. It is probably due for an update, but the information on nutrition and the pump is quite unique.

It offers ways to fine tune your insulin, but was written before some of the smart pumps were on the market. For a basic guide to fine tuning your pump, I highly recommend this book.
