Re: [IP] 30 unit prime on Paradigm???


Whoops!  I guess I made a big typo there and then completely ignored my 
error in my math.

You're right...no 5 units...but .5 units.  That actually means my 
calculations show even LESS insulin for priming, total, than I show 

Sorry about the confusion.


> I use approx. 10-11 units to prime and only 0.7 to fill the cannula 
>of cannula do you use?? 5 units thats gotta be one BIG needle!!!
