Insulin Pump Types

Closed loop insulin pumps are still being researched Insulin pumps come in a variety of forms. Tethered and patch pumps are the options currently available on the NHS or to buy privately. At the moment, a new breed of extra intelligent insulin pumps (closed loop insulin pumps) are being tested under supervised conditions for research and could start to become available if the trials are successful. Tethered insulin pumps are those that have a length of flexible tubing between the pump itself and the cannula (the short, thin tube which goes through the skin). The pump itself, which usually feature controls, is free to be tucked into pockets or carried in pump pouches which can be worn under or outside of clothing. Some tethered pumps may also have controls on a separate handset which may also double up as a blood glucose monitor . Commonly available examples of tethered pumps include: A patch pump is where the pump is attached to the surface of the skin. To allow the pump to be as small as possible, the controls for the pump are located on remote control. The remote control may also serve as a blood glucose meter.

    My friend is no expert, and please someone else chime in. His injection experience is mostly limited to heroin, which he doesn't do anymore because he doesn't have a supplier. But he does inject Ms. Tina also.
    Obviously You will want to use enough water to dissolve your stuff, but don't pull a whole syringe full of water either. I use a 1cc (or 1ml) insulin syringe, with about 30 to 40 units (I think its .30 to .40 ml) of total injectable liquid. It really doesn't matter how much water You uses, it wont dilute your drug with such a small amount of water.
    Also, DO NOT use plain water! Water from a tap or a bottle is not sterile. This is your body and your blood & veins you are messing with! One should only use a bacteriostatic water made for injection. See the pics. He included his hand so you can get an idea of the relative size. This stuff should be used because 1) IT IS STERILE and 2) it is bacteriostatic, which means it may kill the bacteria lurking on your stuff, and there is always a million different bacteria on any street stuff.
    I am told the rules of the site prevent him from saying where You can get it, but he will say if you have an internet connection, you can have this as well as a box of clean new syringes delivered to your door for a few bucks (less than $10 or $15).
