[IP] Lack of low volume alert

First, double check the reservoir amount before setting when doing 5U prime
to make sure the amount is correct; second, try minusing 20 U to reservoir
amount (so that if reservoir has 130U you'd set it to 110U) to see if alarm
works (if it does, you know you still have 40 or 30 U's available; third,
keep bugging MM if the problem continues.

Subject: [IP] Low volume alert

Okay, those of you with MM508.  My book says that it should alert at 20 and
again at 10.  Rachel's has never alerted (even though she has run out of
insulin.  MM replaced her pump due to this, but the new one doesn't alert
until 10.  I am going to try to watch it myself more closely because she
ran out the other night at midnight, only got 1/2 her correction bolus and
then went three hours without insulin!  Pretty scary.  Any input?
