RE: [IP] Monday Night Chat
Love our Cozmore!!!! My daughter is 8 and has been pumping since October,
2005. The glucose readings stored in the pump along with the meal bolus's
is incredibly useful. The pump will essentially "think" for you regarding
how much insulin to deliver based on your glucose readings before meals and
how many carbs you eat. The correction factor is great too. If your
glucose is high you can add a correction bolus. The pump will tell you what
it suggests to deliver and you can adjust it if you need to. The delivery
can be as low as .05 of a unit. My daughter needs this tight control as she
is a little insulin sensitive.
The downloading of the info is EASY!! You get the CozManager software
system that creates some wonderful canned reports you can print or save to a
file. The download process is easy and takes only about 10 minutes.
Decisions, decisions. Good luck on your choice!

I am trying to decide between the animas and Cozmore. Seem to have heard a
lot of positive about Cozmore, but only 2 replies about animas. The debate
in my head is whether I would rather have the smaller animas with the food
lists and carbs and all, or the Cozmore with the meter hooked on. Since I
always have a purse, carrying a separate meter isn't a real problem, but
forgotten it a few times. I like the idea of glucose readings going
into storage, but really don't know if that is a big deal--I can do some
recordings before I send off readings. If I an understanding literature,
doesn't record any readings anyway does it, but the Cozmore does.
Decisions, decisions!! One minute it is definitely the animas, then I read
and decide Cozmore.
