Re: [IP] Reservoir sticking

How about just filling it to full?  Doesn't the minimed give you a readout on the display
how many units are left? When you refill the cartridge just reset it back.. How hard is
that?  You change your sites EVERY DAY?  I am a new user of the pump and that is certainly the worst part of pump therapy.I'd rather stretch it out a bit
... Isn't that expensive to change everyday?

Supposedly this will minimize having to deal with plugging and getting unusable sites.  Being an engineer and a data gatherer, I don't have enough yet to argue that point.  However, I would NOT want to have to guess how much insulin I should put in without even a volumetric calibration line.  I certainly hope MM does not make the same (xxxx) conversion.
