In brief: Possibly
The pump is a wonderful invention to help insulin-dependent diabetics.
However, it requires close monitoring of sugars, and responsible maintenance and programing. Many 6 year-olds can do this with little to no trouble. If she is doing a good job with her sugars. Look into it. Also, if you live anywhere near sc, check out: http://www.Campadamfisher.Com/.
