What We’re Reading: Insulin Pump Safety
By Web Team | May 8, 2008 5:25 pm
The Associated Press’s coverage of a new FDA study about insulin pump safety in adolescents has elicited strong reactions from several members of the diabetes blogosphere. We’ve been reading about this controversy from the following sources:
- The study itself, in the journal Pediatrics;
- The Associated Press article about the study, entitled “Insulin pumps linked to injuries, deaths in teens”;
- Scott Strumello’s analysis of the study’s findings and the media’s coverage at Scott’s Web Log;
- And Kerri Morrone’s interview with a representative from pump manufacturer Medtronic MiniMed at Six Until Me.
What do you think of the FDA’s findings and the media’s coverage of the issue? Let us know in the comments section.
