My 10 year old son has had Type 1 for over 9 years & is only one of a few people in the world to be allergic to insulin, causing sever Lipodystrophy. In 2008 he had his first DiaPort implant. This simple little device was designed for patients with type 2 that are 'insulin resistant' & are no longer able to contraol their levels with injections. Since his first implant life for us has been fantastic, no more painful injections that hit bone due to the tissue waistage, no more insulin accumulation during the night causing drops in hes BGL of up the 15mmols & a lot less arguments. If any one would like to know more about the DiaPort feel free to contact me or if you want to have a look at our photos, check out my web site.
