[IPk] Disetronic webchat last night

Thanks for the info Di - I probably remembered the infusion
bit wrongly.  I was bombarded with information for an hour
and a half!  I was also told that the Disetronic was easier
to program by mistake because it only took one button click
to program a bolus compared to 2 for the Minimed (isn't it
actually a minimum of 3?).  I think this was my specialist's
main objection.  John Davies told me of a case in the USA
where somebody had crashed their car as a result of a hypo
caused by the seal-belt buckle activating multiple boluses
with a Disetronic (is boluses the plural of bolus?).  It was
interesting to see the chatroom notes though because Zoe had
a Disetronic and seemed very happy with it.  I was really
put-off at the start of my trial but that might have been
because I was influenced by my specialists pre-conceptions -
and she doesn't wear a pump of any type!
