Re: [IPp] One Touch Ultra Link w/Minimed Pump

Yes, my son has the Animas 2020 and it does require you to input the bolus 
amount with the arrows.  This is our first pump, so we have nothing to 
compare it to.  We don't think it is a big deal, in fact, it makes us stop 
and think about adjusting the recommended bolus because of extra activity, 
the need for a combo bolus, etc.  Hope this helps!

Mom to Gunnar, dx 5/07, pumping Animas since 11/07, Dexcom since 4/08
