    Hi
    Has anyone used a 'tens' type device while on an insulin pump. It delivers low level energy pulses to provide heat to areas of pain.
    I have ordered one for endometriosis pain. The manufacturers claim it's safe for use for diabetics and will not interfere with other electrical equipment in use. I will ring the pump company to check also but just wondering if anyone else has used one while on the pump.
    Thanks

    I have a Sota Magnetic Pulser, do a similar job to your Tens and when I’ve used it on my feet the neuropathy seems to be worse after using it so i’ve not been using it!
