Re: [IPk] Accu-chek Spirit Pump Time Up



When I got my first spirit (around 06/07) it automatically came with a back up
pump (the main pump was blue and the back up was white and had a shorter timer
(I think 3-6 months). It may have changed if you have the combo. If you are
staying with them they should supply you a short term pump (unless you think
its likely funding won't be approved) can you and/or your DSN get back on to
them?

Thanks for that info Catherine at least I know for certain it will stop on
the day and can be prepared.
Staying with Roche as no choice at the clinic I go to.  They say they get
the best deal from Roche and of course it's all about money.
Back up spirit never mentioned.

Hi Dawn

Yes it does stop on the day- sorry. Did you not get a back up spirit at the
same time? Mine ran out before funding was approved and I ended up with a
loaner from Animas as that was who I switched to- are you staying with Roche
or switching?

Catherine

It might be worth asking Roche nicely if they can supply you at least with a
loaner pump until the funding comes through - Medtronic did that for me when
there was a time lag before the funding was agreed, and there was a problem
with my old pump after the guarantee ran out.
