Re: [IP] Occlusion Alarms

Never got one. I am not sure the Minimed 512 has one

BD is not as good as MINIMED. Called them twice about their meter and the
battery problems I have been having and all I got told was to leave a
message and they would call back. NOT Happening. This is the 2nd Paradigm
meter I have had in 2 weeks. Little round batter last 2 weeks. Then dies. I
put in a new one and it dies the next day. This happened to me weeks ago
with my first one
