Re: [IP] MiniMed Reservior

Kathie -

You already have the insulin you need - it's in the PUMP!  You can use the
syringe to take the insulin out of the pump and inject it!  I don't inject
Regular - I inject the Humalog.  The same would work for you, but you need a
syringe!  Especailly if the infusion set fails, as mine have.  Good luck
(and pack a syringe in your purse).
