[IP] MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Remaining Calculation



MiniMed is the only company that I know of which has this calculation
but DOES NOT allow you to customize the time activity profile of
insulin.  According to someone I spoke with, it is to protect them from
law suits, which seems to be their primary concern, NOT the best
interests of the consumer.  And some people think there is no reason to
be upset with them???  Come on!  Would you love a car that constantly
told you your gas tank was empty when you had plenty left?  No.  Would
you be upset with others for telling people about this flaw?  No.  So
get over it.  Also, it seems as every day I read more posts from users
frustrated with the BD's Error 3 messages.  Can we really applaud a
company that stands behind this flawed technology?  No.

working in your system
