Re: [IPu] Site failures.



Hi Shona,

You really are having a bad run aren't you ?  I really would
trial a change to NovoRapid for a month or so, to see if
things improve.


When I first started Pumping the first 3 months were "pretty rough"
(to say the least) !  An experienced Pumper (on the other side
of the world) told me to "work out the issue then logically try all
the possible options".  I still think it's about the best advice I've had.

I could check whether any other infusions are available OS ?
Not everything is sold in NZ (or AUS).  Since infusions are not
subsidised in NZ, buying them OS may not vary the price much.

I'm happy to list your issue on the International IP List and see if
we can attract additional suggestions / thoughts /ideas and experiences.

Warm Regards,
Janette
PS What does the Quack (Dr) say ...... ?
(Yeh ... I know that could be a silly question) !!
