MM is my choice (was Re: [IP] strange experience with MM
Well, I"m back from my second visit to the endo's office, saw the NP again,
and she's putting in the paperwork for a pump for me!!! And it's a MM 715,
which I think will be the best fit for me, and which is the company I like the
best so far as they've called and even sent me information unasked.... I had an
interesting thing happen last week when I emailed someone not at MM to ask
for a copy of some research information on type 2s and the pump, and got the
information from an MD at MM with a nice note.
Granted they want to sell the pumps, but this was extra.
So, I"m crossing my fingers that I might actually be pumping before too
long!!!! I'm even willing to adjust my post Christmas travel plans if I can
The animas rep called once, about 6 weeks ago and pushed on me the fact that
the animas is waterproof, but that's almost a non-issue since, as someone
pointed out, none of the other crap one must carry around is waterproof, so
I'm on my kayak, I'll put stuff in a dry bag and protect the pump. And when I
swim, I'll disconnect, which is fine anyway since my insulin needs are lower at
that time. Also, the animas reservoir only holds 200 units, and as a very IR
type 2, that wouldn't work for me. I did like the size, but there's the
tradeoff right there.
Cozmo - have never heard one word from them. They sent me their packet and
that's it. Actually, they didn't send it the first time I asked, but they did
send it the second time. I think it's a good pump, and it would perhaps have
been my fist choice had they shown any interest in me as a customer, though
I've never liked the look of it much...
Now, what color do I get???
