[IPp] Paradigm



We have been changing our Paradigm batteries every other weekend, even 
though we have not had the low battery alarm.  Just to be on the safe side.

Oddly enough, it was one of the batteries that MM sent with our pump that 
didn't even make it 2 weeks -- they were probably "old".

We are using Energizers, BTW.

I just want to say that you guys are wonderful.  90% of my questions are
already answered when I log on to check my mail, and your helpful advice is
always right there for me.
  Jessy has been pumping for almost a month now.  Love it!  We have
occasional highs (mostly in late afternoon, early evening) we are probobly
going to up her evening basal from .4 to .5.  I want to talk to the endo
first though.We have had a few problems with sticking, but for the most
part, we do OK with that.  We had crystalization once, but will be switching
to Novalog.  Our pharmacy just will not carry it, so we have to switch
pharmacies for the Novalog only.
  The only problem we seem to have is the battery in the paradigm needs to
be changed every week.  Does anyone out there who uses the paradigm have the
same problem, or is it just us?My Aunt, a doctor, seems to think that maybe
there is a defect in the pump.  I think that it is just how it is, and
willing to change the battery once a week for the benifits that the paradigm
offers.
Thanks for all the help and support!
Cindy, pump mom to Jessy, age 8
