Re: [IP] Pump Vacations and Misc.
1. My Endo. offered the 1/2 unit dispenser and I will try to get the info. You
Find it via google also.
2. My needles work fine. I use BD. ULTRA-FIne Pen Needles for novalog insulin
TRESIBA long lasting insulin. They have given me no problems?
3. When priming, the stream is so fine that I cannot see it. So I aim at a
and give it a couple of squirts and then I can see it. I only prime when
starting a new pen. Also with the needles, they are very short and normally I
don't feel it.
