Re: [IP] unauthorized cheat techniques



Wombn,
I CHEAT ALSO...SORRY MINIMED!
If I have my sof-set QR in a good spot and I run out of insulin I just
refill the reservoir.  You can also just change the QR tubing if it is worn
or you feel there is a problem with it.  I haven't read the other replies to
this but I am sure that I am not the only cheater   ;)

Mel and pumpy
