5 doctors agree

In brief: Approve for both

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics can be put on an Insulin pump, however, it is not the messiah of diabetes care.
You get out what you put into it. If used correctly, it can significantly change your quality of life and control of diabetes. However, if you are using it simply as a glorified Insulin dispenser, then it will disappoint you. Not everyone is a candidate for an Insulin pump.
