 I always wait until I get a LOW BATTERY lalarm before I change my battery. I'm
using CGMS and the UltraLink meter and almost without fail an Energizer battery
lasts 10 days. Not once have I ever gotten a NO DELIVERY alarm with a low
battery, and I often wait several hours after the Low Battery alarm before I
change it. I don't feel the two are related, unless it's been many many hours
after the LB alarm. I've never cut it that close. It is true that one you get
the Low Battery alarm the pump won't let you use the backlight, it won't let you
use the vibrate alarm and I believe it also won't accept readings from the
UltraLink meter.
