Inset II was Re: [IPk] IPk] Diet
Sorry to jump in here, but you said -
"The Inset IIs are a great set for people who depend on
a serter because each set is its own serter device (integrated unit).
Inset IIs work with Animas, Cozmo, or Roche pumps (not Medtronic
MiniMed though). They are available from the UK Animas office"
I am very interested in trying an alternative to the Cleo 90 that Alice uses
on her Cozmo - how would I go about getting a couple to look at / try, do I
just call someone up and they will send them out? Do I have to buy some? I
don't want to commit to a different system without trying it out first, and
seeing what Alice thinks, but I have heard good things about the Inset II.
Mum to Alice 5, pumping Cozmo
