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

I  think it's a good safety measure to input the recommended bolus.  My 8 year
old does the majority of his pump operation (with supervision) and instead of
him habituatlly pressing OK, it's nice to have him actually have to stop and
think and discuss with us the recommendation.  > Date: Tue, 3 Jun 2008
