Re: [IPk] Paradigm 512



Hi Seos

Thanks for your thoughts on the 512.  I am looking forward to trying it 
although I do not expect it to be much different apart from being able to 
use 0.05 units of insulin and having the ability to save my brain 
calculating boluses.  I have had no trouble with the quick-set and the DSN 
did not think there would be any advantages to me changing to the 
silhouettes.  I would have possibly liked to have been able to go as finely 
as 0.25 units but my hospital only used Medtronic and I have no intention of 
changing hospital so that seems to be that.

June
