      What do the latest pumps available do? I was offered one when much younger and more recently but currently manage with multiple injections a day? I hear they are smaller, being a restless sleeper at night would I get tangled in lead for insulin feed.

        I was also offered one when younger but turned it down. Now I wouldn't be without it! They give you so much more flexibility. My HBA1c before was never below 8 now it's always around 5.5. No trouble at night as there are loads of options on where to put your pump out the way. Pumps are much smaller now. I clip my pump onto PJ bottoms and tuck tubing in. You should be able to view some pumps at your diabetic clinic.
