I am new to this website and really never knew that it existed until today. I don't really know if this is the correct place to put this but I just really want to thank all those who made this site because it is extremely hard to find good websites that offer this much information on all the various medical conditions. My husband is a type 1 diabetic and has the minimed paradigm pump and I find it irritating to try to find some place to get his supplies from that is not going to cost an arm and leg. We have no insurance so this website will be extremely helpful in cutting costs and I KNOW that I will be passing this website on to all of my family. Thank you again!!
