Re: [IPp] No Prime error



 We've experienced it with our Animas, and had similar problems with MM and our
Ultrasmart BG monitor. These machines can only withstand cold and hot up to
certain temps. Our ultrasmart had the memory wiped right out. With our Animas
pump Alegra has to have inside all of her clothes against her skin. I am
wondering about skiing. I do know that some people use a sock pinned inside
their clothing to hold the pump in.
