From Bothell, Washington, USA:
What downsides are there to the insulin pump? What about swimming, showering and using a hot tub, etc.? Are they possible?
Both the Animas and the Disetronic pumps are waterproof and can be worn while swimming and showering. It's probably not a good idea to wear a pump while using a hot tub, but you can learn how to disconnect it without losing control for such activities.
