[IP] How to fill pumps?

Dee -
Trust me, nobody on this list will make fun of you.  We're all here for the
same thing - sharing info related to pumping insulin. I have an Animas 1200
and I fill my own cartridges.  It's no big deal; just like filling a giant
syringe. For some pumps, you buy the cartridges pre-filled.  I'd rather fill
them myself, but everybody's different.  My pump has worked like a charm.
I've been Type 1 for 42 years, and pumping  for the past 7 - MiniMed first,
then Animas. Hope this info helps!  Regards, Jane

  I know this will seem like a stupid question to you folks but I'm still
  learning about pumps, am shooting for August to go on one. Do you actually
  fill the cartridges in the pump with insulin or do you get cartridges
  already filled with insulin? I've looked into pumps for the last 3 months
  but this is one question  I keep forgetting to ask. I'm leaning very heavily
  toward the Animas. Thanks in advance for not making fun of me :-) Dee
