Re: [IP] MiniMed 508



I am sure you will find problems here and there with EVERY pump or pump
company.  So the question is, how well is the tech support?  In my
experience MiniMed has been there for me every step of the way!  If I call
them at 2AM-I can speak with a live person who will help me out.  If
something happens and I need a pump replacement I am 100% CONFIDENT that
MiniMed will go out on a limb to help me.
If I am going to wear this thing (Pumpy) 24/7 (which I have for 7 years) I
want to know that I have someone, somewhere backing me up 100%!!

Mel...who loves my MM508!! :)
