Re: [IP] Airline Travel: When adjust the time on the pump



Actually - I traveled for 5 years every week.  I live in San Diego and I
would go all across the country.  When I spoke to a rep at Minimed, they
said not to change the settings unless you are going to be in a different
city for an extended period.  I would suggest calling the company you
purchases the pump from or your doctor for good advice.  I can tell you I
never had any problems even with a three hour time difference, but that
could have been just me.
