Re: [IPk] Paradigm 512
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.
