Re: Subject: Re: [IP] Animas Pump



Good luck Marlene!

 I have been battling my CDE for 4 months now to let me have the Animas
pump.  They finally gave in today after I called the office manager and
complained about the guerrilla tactics my CDE was using to put me on a
Minimed.  Most CDE's are not educated about the Animas pump and are
reluctant to stray far from the norm and what they are used to
using.(Minimed's)

As my CDE told me:  "I don't want to have to think about what pump you are
on when you call me at 3:00AM."
 I told the office manager that is not my problem.  She needs to be educated
if she is going to be in the CDE business.

Fact is - I am the one who will be wearing the pump 24 hours a day - not my
CDE.

Best of luck to you!
