Re: [IP] Minimed vs Animas vs etc



Sharon, one other thing to realize also is by human nature we always look at
the bad in things.  I have been using my MiniMed 508 now for about 6 months
and have not had any problems except the up arrow for the quick bolus will
click 2 times instead of just 1, so I have to be careful to look or listen
to what I'm actually taking.  I haven't reported this to MM yet due to the
fact that I will be upgrading to the new Paradigm the end of this month.
