Re: [IP] saline solution?



When Jenny started with her Animas three years ago, no one even 
mentioned saline. She was trained at our house one afternoon and 
started using the pump. It's not that hard. Although we have learned a 
lot since then, the training and my own research prepared us for a good 
start.
